Two weeks ago, Will and I met up with my former colleague Diane for lunch. We had full intentions on trying out Maharlika because I really wanted to try Filipino food, but when I arrived they said the wait would be around 40-60 minutes and we knew we wouldn't be able to wait that long and we were already starving.
Diane wanted Thai food, so we took her to a Thai restaurant that Will and I like - Pongsri which is quite hidden in Chinatown. Very roomy restaurant and good customer service. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon around 1-1:30PM and amazingly, it wasn't that crowded. We knew what we wanted and placed our orders. We started off with our drinks.
|Thai Ice Coffee|
|Chicken Pad Thai|
|Beef & Meatball Noodle Soup|
|Pad See Euw with Calamari|
Pongsri is one of the only Thai restaurants I know in Chinatown. I decided to bring Diane here because I remember the food was good here, but in my opinion the food quality has fell. It certainly didn't wow me.
