I love a well-made chicken pad thai.
Because my wife, Robin, is a full-fledged vegan – and there aren’t many restaurants that her, Joey and I can go to that serve dishes all three of us will like – when we go out as a family, we’ll often choose the Noodles & Co. restaurant chain (which makes a pretty decent pad thai).
But here in downtown Baltimore – just a three-minute walk from the back door of our office building – there’s one of those little “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” takeout joints that serves a superb chicken pad thai.
Situated on North Charles Street, the restaurant is called Thairish. I go there so often – and so frequently treat coworkers – that when I walk in the door the proprietor smiles and asks, “How many orders?”
