Surprise! Great Thai dish at Albany Bowl - bowling alley!

elise h | Dec 21, 201010:39 PM

My food expectations at a bowling alley were low, sub-zero, in fact. As I perused the menu on the wall, over half the items were Asian and many were Thai inspired. It even had pad see ew! I starting wondering if this could be a hidden chowhound find. Instead of ordering my original safe bet cheeseburger, I order the basil tofu and eggplant, which came with rice for $6. 8 minutes later, the dish came out, piping hot, pretty, fresh, and delicious. Sauce had just the right sweetness and balance. I saw other customers' hamburgers; they looked uninspired. Seems like the chef's heart is in the Thai dishes.
