> 101 N. 11th St.
> Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
> Phone: 215/629-9939
>Under $15
>In 1988 Heng Leevongcharoen and his wife, Rudee, opened Thai Garden in
>West Philadelphia. It quickly became the leading Thai restaurant in the
>city. In 1990 Chef Leevongcharoen moved to Center City, next door to the
>new Convention Center, and created Thai Garden East. The contemporary
>ambience is different, but the food that made both restaurants popular is
>as good, and as inexpensive, as ever. The miena cum appetizer---toasted
>peanuts, coconut chips, and lime piled on spinach leaves spiced with
>chopped chili and Thai plum sauce---is delectable. Chu chee (curried duck)
>and Thai-style barbecued chicken with sweet-and-sour sauce are among the
>excellent entries. For dessert try Thai custard. AE, D, DC, MC, V.
