Mary was in town for her 30th birthday and I couldn't join in the festivities so we met up by ourselves for lunch. I asked her what she was craving in LA and she said she wanted to eat thai food, yay! I’ve been waiting for an excuse to check out Ord Noodles for awhile so this was the perfect occasion. I heard that their noodle soups were really good, but I wasn’t sure about their other dishes. I figured Mary would want pad see ew or pad kee mao and if they are known for their noodle soups, their stir fried noodles, had to be good too, right?
Here's the restaurant from the side street.

Usually I'm the first to dig into the condiments and hot peppers at a Thai restaurant, but the food is really spicy so there was no need this time around.
Apparently they are known for their boat noodle soup so I'll have to go back for that next time. It's another new find for me in Thai Town. Don't worry Deb, we'll go next time when you're in town.
Update on Soomeenshee: It's the day before the elections here and I find myself in an unusually quiet office. The rest of the gang went off to a pre-election rally and I am manning the phones b/c I need to help Korean callers find their polling locations tomorrow. The cutest call I got today was from an elderly grandmother who wanted to come from Brooklyn to vote in this election. I had to tell her that even though she wants to vote for Kevin, she doesn't live in our district so she can't just come and vote for him. It was adorable. The office has never been this quiet. Silence, oh how I've missed you. We're hoping for a great turnout tomorrow and a victory for Kevin. The day begins for us at 4:30 am. Wish us luck!
