Thai Food Hating Profiled Lunch’er Eats Some Thai Food
Remember the profiled lunch’er who admitted that he didn’t like Thai food, and then became the most ridiculed Profiled Midtown Lunch’er of all time? Well, for once, your ridicule actually worked to effect positive change in the world- and “Matt” is happy to report that he tried Thai food again and… (well, I don’t want to spoil it.)
After the spirited feedback from the comments section (side note to the person who accused me of living in my parents basement: you’re insulting random people on the internet and I’m the one who lives in my parents basement?), I decided to journey out and try Thai food. The choice was Pam’s Real Thai Food (on 49th btw. 9+10th), although I generally don’t eat at restaurants that cite their realness in the name, I decided to trust the comments section. I selected a number of co-workers so we could maximize our order. While the shrimp roll we started with was typical, I found the Thai Beef Jerky to be quite a treat. I don’t even like regular beef jerky – could this Thai cuisine improve on other dishes as well? As the different entrees were passed around the table, I noticed the Pad Thai coming my way. This was the big moment.
I tried this traditional Thai dish and I found it to be quite delicious! The sauce was fantastic and it had just the right mix of noodles and vegetables.
Would I eat Thai food again? Absolutely. Although I put Thai food in the same category as Indian food – foods I will eat only if I’m not doing anything important that day. I wouldn’t chow down on this before a big meeting. That’s just me. Feel free to disagree and you probably will… as I am the most hated man in Midtown Lunch history.
Ok, so it may have worked this time commenters. But don’t think that this makes up for all the non-productive times you guys have massacred Profiled Lunchers…
