Midtown is a difficult place to find something delicious to eat. The constant barrage of lights and “Ray’s Pizza” signs make you feel a bit hopeless as you wander around hungry. There are better choices out there if you wander off the main drag and head east or west.
I went to Pam’s Real Thai Food for a late lunch on Friday. It is two avenues away from Broadway but it feels like a mile.
The waiter was well versed in what gluten free meant and advised me to make a selection or two and then he would confirm if it was gluten free.
I ordered the Green Thai Curry. The curry itself was excellent but I was a bit taken aback by the small portion of white rice served along with it. As I consumed the dish I realized that they gave me exactly the right amount of rice.
The food here is very, very reasonably priced. I believe my bill with tip totaled about $13.00. The portions are not too large so each person needs to order their own dish, but there is room for sharing as everything is served family style.
