Get Thai’d’ Up at Pad Thai

I went to this place called Pad Thai in Bernal Heights last Monday night. My roommate Heddy took me there. It was kinda way out there, but it pretty much hit the spot and was hella cheap. We had three dishes and beers for about $30. Perfect. We didn’t do anything drastic but stuck with the normal Thai delights. We had vegetarian spring rolls with a really good sauce ($6.50 for four), Tom Yum Gung soup which was very lemongrassy and spicy with shrimp ($9.50 for a big bowl), andthe Panang Curry with fried tofu and veggies in an awesome basil-coconut red curry sauce ($8.50). We were so full we even had left overs!

Anyways, if you are over paying too much money for bland Thai food, give Pad Thai a try. From the name of it, I am guessing they must have really good Pad Thai – or they just think that is the only Thai dish most people relate to. Either way, I’ll give it a shot next time.  I heard the Pumpkin Curry is pretty bomb, too…it must be lunch time – I’m gonna break out my left overs right about now. Oh yeah, it is closed on Wednesdays, but opened from 11 am-10 pm every other day.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
