One month later, I guess that’s enough of a blogging battery recharge. The eatin’ in Wheaton remains good. Lunch today at Saigonese (11232 Grandview), where I was the only diner during much of my meal. I don’t know if that is normal Friday lunch business or if the economy is to blame or if I have violated some Vietnamese-food-is-forbidden-on-October-1 rule. There were a couple of takeout orders, and one couple arrived after I was almost done.
As I was leaving, a pair of women arrived and had this conversation with the server:
Women: Is this a Thai restaurant?
Women: Oh, someone told us this was a Thai restaurant.
Women: Do you know where there is a Thai restaurant?
Lucky for everyone, I was able to direct them to the East side of Georgia, where all of Wheaton’s Thai restaurants live. I sent them to Nava, but if they stumbled across Dusit or Suporn or Ruan on the way I’m sure that worked out just fine.
Right, my lunch: special #1, charcoal pork with noodles and veggies (large bowl, solid value at $6.95) and a Vietnamese iced coffee, sweet, rich, really went well with the pork. Also got some lemongrass chicken to go, that will make a nice lunch on Monday, if it lasts that long.
