Pam’s Real Thai Food

Pam Real Thai Food MidtownMidtown 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.

Pam Real Thai Food SloganPam’s is a very generic looking place, both inside and out, but the food is fabulous. Pam Panyasiri has been cooking here since 2001 bringing flavors from all over Thailand to NYC.

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.
