Thai’d Up in Noodles

It’s almost embarrassing to admit how long it took me to think of a punny title for last night’s dinner adventure. M and I originally planned to check out macaroni and cheese place but when we got there it was packed and we were too hungry to wait for a table. Ultimately, a good call seeing as I don’t like cheese, or even had mac and cheese (cue cries of outrage) because it smells offensive to me. Even the vegan option with a walnut topping sounds daunting. As the sky began to drizzle and we felt progressively more miserable, we booked it to campus. Scoped out a bunch of places and finally decided on comfort food at Thai Noodle II.

The collegiate-kitch ambiance

Entrees that are more sweet than savory, like Pad Thai with tofu (7), bother me. The sauce tasted like pure sugar. As a Pad Thai aficionado, M agreed with this and was greatly disappointed in the lack of flavor. She doused it with soy sauce and chili flakes.

The Red Curry Noodles (7) were also shockingly sweet, but coconut milk and chili oil sort of salvaged it. Such a large portion of this rich soup is best shared between people. I did however enjoy the abundance of seasonal veggies and thin springy noodles. I just wasn't sure if I was eating dinner or dessert.

But then after this dismal meal we went to Kingpin to get freshly fried donuts and thus my faith in food was restored.
