Wat Buddhanusorn, 36054 Niles Blvd (@ Rock Ave), Fremont, CA 94536. 510-790-2294. We finally got around to trying this place. Wat Buddhanusorn, it's kinda hidden on Niles Blvd behind trees and in a residential neighboorhood. The parking lots was full, so we made a crazy turn into the 7-Eleven parking lot across the street. It was getting full too, as it was almost 11am. The temple starts selling food from 9am-2 or 3pm. One guy told us 10am is the perfect time to go there.
There are flowers and baskets for sale in the front next to the Temple, but the food is in the back yard. They have a good size selections of different dishes, not as big as Thai Temple in Berkeley. There are many areas to eat your food-in the tent or out further in the back-some shaded areas.
They sell tokens here too-1 token for $1. We spent $35 for two of us, with left-overs for dinner.
3 chicken skewers for 3 tokens. Very tasty w/ good peanut sauce
Seafood noodle soup-4 token
tasty, but too sweet tasting for Ben
Steam fish in banana leaf-3 token
steamed perfect, beautiful presentation, tastes of onion,ginger, lots of fresh flavors, think she said it was monkfish.
chicken curry over rice-3 token
very tasty, lots of basil, chicken, eggplant
good-not dry at all
fried chicken over rice
chicken kinda dry even though fresh out of the fryer
sweet roti-dessert 2 for 3 tokens
very fresh, hot off the grill w/ sweetend condensed milk and sugar. Loved it.
Will be going back for more. Still many things to try-didn't try the pad thai or papaya salad but they looked good.
