Has anybody else tried this thai cafe in Pasadena?
Curious to hear what others think. I had tried the first Saladang years ago and was not impressed, but good reviews made me want to try the cafe.
We went yesterday afternoon, it was a little chilly inside /cold metalic decor.
Started with stuffed ( shrimp/noodles) chicken wings which were good, not at all greasy. Rather boring dipping sauce, and no nam prik on table.
What was out of this world! was the green curry. Best I have ever had, I am salivating NOW just thinking about it ! Unbelievable flavors, fresh coriander, basil , coconut all balanced so that no one overpowered. Just hot enough to sneak up on you and make you sniffle.
The service was very friendly, and a nice touch was putting the leftover curry in a plastic liner inside the togo carton so no oil leaked thru.
I will be going back to try more variations of the green curry, ie with fishcake and noodles.
