If you’re working as hard as me, trying to get summer (spring?) projects finished before school starts at the end of the month, you will surely need a new Thai restaurant to help. Check out my latest restaurant review for Noodle N Thai in Springfield. It appeared this week in Eugene Weekly‘s Chow! quarterly dining guide. I think the Register-Guard really dropped the ball on this one, as the quasi-review in the strange Q&A format restaurant column last month didn’t pick up on the fact that they make their own noodles and curry pastes. This is Crucial Information, fellow foodies, Crucial. (And I would encourage all restaurant reviewers to eat more than one dish one time at a restaurant before writing a review…these shouldn’t be marketing pieces but an assessment of the food!) Pictured above, Thai “spaghetti” red curry, made with said homemade curry paste and rice noodles.
By the way, the restaurant is down the street from Momma’s Kitchen, a great place for fried chicken. The reviews have been mixed, but my admittedly and unabashedly northern taste buds quite enjoyed it, especially the collards and fried okra.
