A travel journal

Quote: In two different neighborhoods, these Thai restaurants share similarity in interesting, modern decor and yummy, inexpensive food.
After a few minutes and some reorganizing of the room, we and our two friends were seated in the window. Benches along the wall look modular but were surprisingly comfortable.
The fare was a mixture from Thailand and Singapore. I tried only the Thai food, and the dishes were large and delicious. At prices between $6 and $9 per entree, that's a true bargain.
This little chain from Singapore is relatively new to the streets of New York. I think it's the only U.S. location. I'm not sure the prices will last.

The food was fairly good. I liked my appetizers more than my entrée, but the desserts are vegan and delicious! (I had the chocolate brownie.)
The food is vegetarian, but they will add meat if you want (so all types are welcome), and prices are extremely reasonable: $7 to $8 per entrée and $4 to $5 for most appetizers, but some are less.
I'm not sure how long the interior will stay clean with the tiles, but I suppose it can always be hosed down.
