Pa-Ord Thai Noodles in Hollywood

lil mikey | Dec 6, 201001:13 PM    

Being named Pa-Ord Noodles is a clue – as in: order the noodles.

The Noodle Combination Plate comes with tender fresh wide rice noodles, perfectly cooked, with ground pork, tofu, squid, shrimp, Krab, green onion, sliced carrot and a tasty brown sauce. It’s $7.95, a bargain.

The Pad Thai is not overly smothered with sauce, as in some other places. It has tender fresh thin rice noodles, the thickness of angel hair pasta as opposed to the shape of fettuccine like other places. The chicken is not hunks of meat and gristle like you get elsewhere. It’s white breast meat that’s surprisingly not overly dry. The peanuts are freshly chopped, and the bean sprouts are amazingly plump and fresh. And the sauce is not too sweet. Squeeze the perfectly ripe lime over the top, add some peppers, and you’re in business. YUM. It’s $6.95.

It’s a good tipoff when many of the other 10 tables are occupied by Thai people actually speaking Thai. And there’s a Thai news station on the TV.

They’ve been open about 7 months, and I suspect this will be a neighborhood staple for a long time.
