Went there last night. I had somewhat mixed feelings, and I 'll explain why: the place is clearly legit, and I have a feeling that if one orders right, as my husband did, it's a great place. I, however, apparently did not order right. We started with the fish cakes, which were just too meaty and odd tasting for me. Then Paul got the #56, not sure of the name. He ordered it medium, and I thought it was just that, medium, not too hot, not too mild. I ordered the #22, can't remember what they call it there, but at other places it is known as Pad Kee Mow, fire noodles, or drunken noodles. With being pregnant, the spiciness is sometimes too hard on me, so I had to go with mild, but even so, I was not thrilled. The noodles were kind of rubbery and there was no real basil flavor as there should be based on the description.
So what is a noodle dish I can get there that will please me? Not a huge pad thai fan, but willing to try it if it is especially good there.
