Pete n' Mom opened in December in the storefront next to the Ivy Bar on San Pablo (just off Solano, across the street from Nizza la Bella) in Albany. Nicely decorated, about 10 tables, plus a long bar with stools. Menu says they serve Thai food with a California touch (or something to that effect).
Had three dishes yday for lunch and I'd go back to try more of their menu. They said that business has been slower and slower each day - might be the location ....would be interested if anyone else has tried it.
Veggie spring rolls were really good - not too greasy, full of veggies.
Fried tofu-veggie fritters were kind of rubbery and served on a bed of ... pita bread. Not so successful.
Spicy veggie fried rice was wicked spicy but good with fresh veggies and a huge portion. They even brought me more chilis to add in case it wasn't spicy enough. I think I'd stick with regular fried rice next time and add my chilis to taste.
The other two tables of diners also commented on the spiciness of dishes, so at least they aren't afraid to keep the spice level up there with traditional Thai food.
Some other dishes that sound interesting: Thai Rum Ginger (fresh ginger, sauteed with thai rum, onions, mushrooms), chicken pappardelle (with pineapple and savory tomato sauce), whisky spaghetti (stirfried spaghetti with seafood, thai whisky, garlic-chili sauce and veggies).
Also have standards - curry, pad thai, pad kra praow, tom yum & tom kha soups.
If you get food to go or take home leftovers, make sure you ask them to put the sauces in separate containers - I had leftover spring rolls and they poured the dipping sauce into the container over the spring rolls - mmm extra soggy leftovers.
