Mai Phim Thai Restaurant

Mai Phim has it all: blaring Taiwanese pop, waitresses that sound like anime characters, and most importantly, good food. It's an unassuming little place near the market.

It's menu is typical of Thai restaurants. Swimming Rama, Phad Thai, Pad Kee Mao, curries, etc. I had the Panang curry with chicken. I asked for spicy, and it was just right. It made my lips burn, but the flavors still shone through.

My lunch companion had soup. The Tom Kah Kai with coconut milk and mushrooms. I got to try some, and it was very tasty as well.

It is a bit of a hole in the wall. Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Oh, remember the Thai Pop music? I took a video, just for you.


And so we come to the conclusion. Was it good? Definitely. Was it reasonably priced? See for yourself.

17 something. That's awesome for two people


Update
I was listing the wrong location. The place pictured above is the one on Pike. The one on Columbia is good too though.

it's just a blogger video. it should be an flv played in a flash player. the most playable video on the web.

Wait, no. Blogger makes 3gps? Wtf? I'm targeting web, not mobile.

Try the flickr version, it'll probably work better.

(the place was good. Mmmm)
