the new thai noodle joint on Haight and Masonic

Jupiter | Jan 28, 200204:50 PM     9

Since this board is about posting any and all delicious things found in and around the bay area i would like to take a moment to express my happiness at having a good thai noodle soup joint in my neighborhood. The last 2 weekends in a row i have found myself starving, broke, freezing and with an empty larder. So SAD! so both times i have found myself wandering around the corner and up to the corner of Haight and Masonic hoping to find something to make me warm and sated. and both times i have turned to the new Thai Noodle place, which, even though it looks REMARKABLY alot like the King of Thai Noodle restaurants on Clement street, i do not think they are affiliated. the name is slightly different and so is the menu. My favorite part, the soups are GREAT. delicious broth, prefectly prepeared noodles, brimming with tons of veggies and the table is set with about 20 different condiments to anoint your delicioius bowl of steamy goodness! Oh my, never have i been so pleased and warmed with less than 7 dollars in my pocket. The bowl is large, but not overwhelming, the broth is clear (as i believe broth should be) and not oily. The noodles are prepped correctly so that they do not lump together in the bottom of your bowl making it impossible to slurp up with chopsticks and spoons. The vegetables are crisp and fresh and not added to early so that they turn to soggy crap. they will give you lime, they will give you chopped peanut, they will give you what ever you want and it will all be good. I am so happy to have something else in my hood besides bagels and homefries and bad hamburgers and even worse crepes.
Thank you Thai noodle house...i will see you next saturday i am sure.
