Don't be cruel. Surely you've heard of Thai Elvis?
Unfortunately, the acoustics in the restaurant were absolutely retched. I couldn't even tell you what Thai Elvis was crooning that evening. Nonetheless, where else can you get pad Thai with a side of "Love Me Tender"?
We started off with Thai iced tea $2.25.
Pad Thai with chicken $6.99.
Pineapple fried rice with chicken, raisins, cashews, eggs, and curry powder $6.99.
Red curry with coconut milk, bamboo shoots, bell pepper, and basil leaves for $7.25.
Coconut soup with chicken, galangal, mushrooms, chili paste and fresh chili $10.99. Yup. They did not call this Tom Kha Gai (Thai Galangal and Chicken Soup with Coconut Milk) on the menu but the very whitewashed coconut soup.
Chicken and broccoli stir-fry $6.99.
Thai grilled beef with special house sauce $8.99. I have no idea what was in the house sauce but it was soooo good. I kept trying to figure out all the different ingredients. Smoky, spicy. Just so very good.
Thai Elvis again.
All the dishes were good, but nothing special, except for that house sauce. I wish the restaurant's acoustics and ambiance were better because it was such a shame that Thai Elvis' singing was lost amongst all the customers' chatter. He really was quite good.
