The Secret is Out. Eat Here Now

For a long time this little restaurant was the best kept secret.  That’s no longer the case.  I have always loved how close it is to my house in the 156th and Center area.  I have tried a lot of other good Thai restaurants in town but I personally liked this one the best.  They have a hot sauce that is made there and although it doesn’t always treat me well the older I get, I can’t lay off it.  I start to crave it about 3 days after I eat there until I eat there again.  But they have great dishes of all kinds from asian to middle eastern cuisine.  I personally love one of their specialty menu items called Kang Ho.  There is an English name but I just remember that one in parenthesis.  They know what I like anyway so I don’t have to ask.  I get it with veggies and tofu as I no longer eat meat.  But enough about the food cuz I don’t think this keyboard is drool proof.  They seemed to have changed management a few years ago.  Maybe a son or relative took it over.  I don’t know the story cuz we just  know each other as frequent guests but haven’t talked in any depth.  Since then they remodeled and did an impressive upgrade to their website.  They menu has stayed relatively the same.  It’s a tiny place but it’s now very contemporary and quaint.  Very straight forward decorating which is perfect for the size.  On my girlfriend’s and my last visit we were struck by how busy it has gotten.  It was a Saturday night and we got there early, before 7.  It was already busy and they only have one actual waiter, the manager (owner?) and 1 or 2 in the kitchen.  We weren’t in a hurry so we just sat back and watched them handle their new found success.  They were running and some people were getting a little restless.  More and more people kept coming in and were piling up front.  I loved it.  Eventually, we all got our delicious food with a smile and apology.  No one starved to death.  Yes, it took longer than usual, but like I said we weren’t in a rush.  I congratulated the frazzled manager on my way out.  It’s a beautiful thing to see good businesses and good people do well.
