Where the curry's green and the food is pretty.
Thai Paradise (909 E. Las Tunas Drive, San Gabriel) isn't the best Thai around by a longshot, but it's reliable, fast, and fairly easy on the wallet. Our recent visit cost about $12 a head.
We went on Wednesday with some friends who were in town from Denver, as well as some local friends. The two guys were Mr. Monkey's groomsmen and vice-versa. Fun!
Pineapple fried rice. Always great. Cashews make me happy.
Green curry tofu. Just the right amount of kick.
Spicy basil chicken over fried tofu. More kick here. And glistening goodness.
Soft shell crab. My fave. Crunch crunch crunch.
Pad thai. A decent staple.
Complimentary red bean and corn dessert.
You love this, or you don't. Can you guess to which camp I belong?
