New Thai Place Open On Maiden Lane, Cuban Food Truck Spotted In FiDi
When I walked by 22 Thai Cuisine on Maiden Lane (btw. Nassau & Broadway) last night it was empty, and by today was open and packed for lunch. They move quickly! It replaces another Asian place Sushi a la Kawa that closed and merged with Oka Sushi a couple of doors down. My Spidey sense tells me the Thai spot is owned by the same people, but hey, maybe I’m wrong. A look at the lunch menu shows it’s pretty standard Thai fried rice/curry/noodle dishes for $8 or $9, but there were a couple of other interesting things on the other portion of the menu, like Thai pork chops.I’m already bracing myself for disappoint, but I hope that 22 Thai proves me wrong. Plus, a new truck serving Cuban food was spotted downtown, after the jump.
Also, lunch’er Tom spotted a new truck downtown yesterday called Qba Kitchen (find them on Twitter here). They were at Ann St. & Nassau, but apparently today they are out of commission. Tom reports that “They had ‘lechon’, which was really just pernil, Cuban sandwiches, rice and beans, etc… It was pretty mediocre for a $7 plate, especially when you can get more/better food at Sophie’s.”
If and when they are downtown again I’ll check in and let you know. And I will definitely be checking out the new Thai spot with my fingers crossed.
