Mae Kong Thai

Like the Frank Sinatra song about love, sometimes a dining experience is better the second time around. It certainly was for us at this small, informal restaurant early on a recent (yesterday) Thursday evening. We parked nearby and on entering found only 3 tables occupied. We again took advantage of the free corkage policy by bringing a bottle of chilled white wine with glasses and cork screw provided by management. Deciding to skip both appetizers and salads, we shared shared orders of #71 and #72 from the Specialties section of the menu. The former is stir-fried crispy chicken with chili peppers, garlic, red and green bell peppers, cashew nuts and crispy holy basil while the latter is Mae Kong Noodle - stir-fried flat rice noodles with pork, lettuce, scallion, sprinkles of crispy noodles, cilantro and topped with in-house sauce. The crispy chicken was vibrant in both flavor and eye appeal while the noodle dish a little less so. Our personable server, most likely the owner, highlighted the 18% gratuity added to the bill when using a Groupon and the $10 minimum charge card policy. I kept it simple by leaving a 25% tip and paid in cash.
