THAI Thai Joint’s narrow storefront leads into a quaint, modernly decorated space
that fills quickly during peak hours. FROM PAGE 11
“spicy noodles” strewn with basil, onions, tomatoes and bell pep- pers—similar to pad Thai sans the beans sprouts and crushed peanuts. The “duck” was chunky, dark in color, moist and moder- ately convincing in flavor and texture. If only the manufacturers of faux fowl could find a way to replicate the savory prized skin. Aficionados of Thai cuisine on the hunt for something novel should look no further than the spicy basil pumpkin bowl, which imparts a red-curry soaking to the fleshy autumn fruit without obliterating its nutty, creamy pith. It’s quite wonderful and you’ll be hard-pressed to find the dish in other Thai restaurants.
Complementing our mostly vegetarian feast, we ordered real chicken in garlic-pepper sauce from the menu’s “wok this way” category. It featured soy-glazed breast meat encircled by plain, steamed broccoli that perked up significantly as it merged with the sauce and chopped green onions in the stir fry. A few dabs of the aforementioned chili sauce raised the zing to our exact liking. Service was exceptionally
efficient and polite. Tea candles were lit promptly at sunset. Silverware was replaced between courses without fail. And when our waitress detected a wobble in our table, she was quick to insert stabilizers under the legs. For a place that calls itself “a joint,” the dining experience exceeds expectations.u
