Jandara, Woodly Park Review

zaf | Jan 18, 2005 10:56 PM

The worst thing that can happen to your body, barring bus collisions, falling off a cliff, or using any product from the Body Shop, is to live next to a Chipotle. But right up there at # 2 is knowing that Jandara of Woodly Park is on your way home from work every day.

I am not even gonna try to be unbiased here. In a city of mediocre Thai restaurants, Jandara is tasty and fast. In an area of touristy, food, Jandara is cheap and incidentally very pretty. One evening you look up after picking your plate clean to discover that these factors have brought you back there every day for a week.

After much research entirely in the name of culinary inquiry, I suggest:

Chicken with green curry - Actually, get this just for the chili coconut sauce. I’d drink that stuff like water if I could

Jandara Noodles - Sweet yellow curry on a dry chow fun style noodle. At night this dish will take over your usual dreams of being chased by big hairy tentacle monsters or showing up naked in class.

Tom Kha Gai – An excellent version of an old favorite. Lemony, coconuty, cheap

You leave Jandara with your tummy purring like a nest of fuzzy kittens all snuggled around each other.
