Lunch’er Teresa Reports: New Thai Food Cart on 52nd
Remember the days when we used to beg for somebody to open a Thai food cart in Midtown? Well, now we have two! Lunch’er Teresa checked in yesterday to let us know about a new Thai food cart on 52nd and 6th Ave.
Not sure if you’ve seen, but there’s a new thai food cart on the SW corner of 52nd St and 6th Ave – located next to Gobuki (korean cart). I haven’t seen anything about this cart on the internet anywhere so thought you might want to review it. Not sure of the name, but there’s a single guy working in an old halal cart. This cart definitely gives tuktuk boy a run for its money.
I ordered the Pad Thai – $7 (the dish to set the standard) and it was HUGE. Double the size of the pad thai from TukTuk Boy. There were a lot of noodles, not too much vegetables and a good amount of chicken. Everything was well balanced. Would be nice to have more vegetables, but not sure how much vegetables pad thai should have.
In terms of flavor, its quite flavorsome (better than tuktuk boy!) with a good mix of peanuts and pickled vegetables. Would be good to get some chilli sauce/paste with it, but then again, I didn’t ask for it. I’m eating the pad thai as I write this email and my gut feel tells me I should go and try the other foods on the menu as well!
I’ve attached a pic of the cart, as well as a pic of my food. I definitely feel this place deserves more business (there was one other person when I was there and every other time I’ve walked past, there wasn’t anyone there).
Hope you enjoy it! Thanks!
Done and done. Review coming soon… in the meantime, if there are any early adopters out there who have tried this cart, let us know what you think in the comments.
