My seven year-old daughter won't eat anything "exotic" except Pad Thai, so we checked this joint out Friday night. Service was friendly, but it took a long time for our food to arrive even though the restaurant still had a few empty tables. I ordered the Spicy Beef Salad to start and the Slow-braised Pork as my entree. The salad was disappointing with its browning root ends of iceberg lettuce. I wouldn't say the beef, which I'm pretty sure was flank, was gamy, but perhaps it was a heavy hand on the fish sauce that overpowered the beef flavor. I started off enjoying the pork, but with each bite the sauce tasted sweeter and sweeter until it seemed like I could have put the sauce on some vanilla ice cream and it would have been good. Additionally, about a third of the chunks of pork were virtually all fat. The Pad Thai, however, was about as good as I've had. The noodles weren't gummy, greasy or dry, the veggies were fresh, and it had just enough of that smokiness to make it interesting. I couldn't believe how much she ate! The location of the bathroom was a little weird. You have to squeeze your way through the expediting area of the kitchen to get there. La Ong Thai Website
The gem in this report is that Eater Philly's erroneous use of the Greek Delta amounts to "STD Burger."
