Yum! Please patronize this place. I'd had to see it go the way of other good restaurants, which usually seem to disappear in Lewiston.
Thai Jar Earn is a nondescript place at the intersection of College and Sabattus streets, a short walk from Bates College. It's in a building that used to house a variety store and sandwich counter (across the street from the lamentable Luiggi's). It's great food, well-prepared, and the price is right.
Tonight's dinner for three included chicken stay with cucumber and peanut sauces (four big skewers for $5.50); big, very fresh spring rolls with homemade peanut sauce ($4.25 -- more than enough for three people); pineapple fried rice with pork, eggs, onions, scallions, carrots and basil (a big platter fo $7.95); spicy pad thai with veggies; and a red curry loaded with chicken and fresh vegetables. Everything was fresh, well-seasoned, and delish! Our tab, including one large iced tea, came to $40.25 before tip. A bargain.
