It’s been cold and dreary while waiting for the owners of this veg Thai restaurant to return. I actually only found out that they were closed in February, after braving a cold and snowy winter night just to get there. So when I visited this week I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that my expectations were very high. At least the week day lunch scene wasn’t too crowded or hoity-toity.
So, if you’ve been to ChuChai before, you’ll remember that every “meat” had a menu page of its own. The new menu is condensed to a cardboard fold-out and there seem to be less options per “meat”. I noticed that the Pad Thai has changed to “Royal Pad Thai”, consisting of various mock meats and “shrimp”. I didn’t order it, so I didn’t ask if the shrimp were vegan. Next time.
