Tried togo to Ubol's (Thai) for lunch Wednesday while I was in Astoria. i didn't know that they open at 4pm on wednesdays. I'll have to try it another time, since i've never been there.
I had passed an Argentine restaurant (El Farolito, 2539 Steinway) on the way. Had their lunch special ($8 i believe) which included a great tortolini soul and french fries or oven potatoes. The entrana was very good, as was the chimi churi (fresh chopped parsley) , the soup, and the French fries (crispy). The bread they serve was warm and excellent.
Is this restaurant usually very good, or did I just get lucky? let me know before I run back there.
