Thai Takes Putnam

I just returned from the new Thai place in Carmel and was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't look like much, but I'm so excited to have a new place- and Thai no less- that I risked it.

We ordered two things- the Crispy Paad Thai and the Tamarind Duck. Both were yummy. They have a more traditional Paad Thai, but we wanted something different. This was made with fried egg noodles rather than steamed rice noodles and the sauce was delicious. The duck was very crispy and not fatty at all. The sauce was something of a sweet and sour but more interesting than you might expect. While there, there was a table for 3 who were also very happy with their food. (It looked like they all ordered curries. I should have asked.)

I'm not saying this is the best Thai food around, but it's absolutely good enough for a quick dinner or tasty lunch which is more than I can say of plenty of other Thai places in Westchester/Putnam/Danbury.
