All the more reason to love Thainatown! Big servings, fresh ingredients, and cheap don’t always come together. But, occasionally, you get lucky; like I did with Satang Thai. It used to be that I would wait in a long line that crawled around Quay St during the lunch hours – elbow to elbow with UNI students and a few suits. The kitchen is almost exactly the same size as the tiny sit-in at the front. And then, I discovered the outpost across the street (literally across the street) – I have no idea how I missed it before!
Perhaps, it’s a little more “trendy” and the price is marginally higher. But the Chili Jam Chicken, Pad See Ew, and the (very rich) Massaman Curry… mmmmmmm… exactly the same!

Avg Price at the take-away is probably around $7-8 while the sit-in across the street is more like $11-15 (but can be shared since the portion seems larger) – a bargain!! I should probably live closer to the area…
