Work took me to the Raritan, NJ area this morning and since I work there for about five years I remembered Thai Kitchen for lunch. It’s just down the road from where I was visiting. I found this ironic since the poll I created yesterday didn’t include Thai as a choice (take the poll if you haven’t)
Not much had chanced in this shopping center eaterysince my last visit a couple of months back . The restaurant turns tables quickly but keeps customers coming back with good food, quick service and good value. For $12 including a 20% tip, I got a delicious a crispy Thai Egg Roll, Shrimp Pad Thai and a Thai Ice Tea.
The lightly fried Thai Egg Roll contained cabbage, glass noodles and carrots. It was served with a gentle sweet and sour sauce. The Pad Thai was a delite with nice mixtures of hot smooth Thai rice noodles and cold crispy bean sprouts, crunchy peanuts and turnips along with soft tofu and egg. I choose shrimp, rather than chicken, pork or squid, to complete the dish. The waiter did ask me how hot I liked it. The menu had a scale of one to five very red elephants. Given I come from the Great White North and haven’t built up a good tolerence to heat even after 8 years in the USA, I went for one Elephant. The waiter suggested I go for a”Bambi Elephant”. LOL but I went for it. In retrospect I think I could handle a whole Elephant or even two (big day for me).
If you are in the Raritan/Bridgewater be sure to check out the Thai Kitchen.
