On Our Radar:
Pad-See-Ew and Happy B-Day Too
Posted by:  Emily Groves

Tucked away in a shopping center off Route 50 in Virginia lies some of the best Thai food in the area--at least in my uneducated, not-too-well-informed, quite subjective opinion. Clean, nice establishment; friendly service; aromatic, flavorful, delicious dishes: I cannot ask for more. And if one judges the quality of international food by the percentage of said international group in a particular restaurant specializing in that international food, then I believe my opinion cannot be far removed from the truth because my English-speaking table stood out. Crystal Thai's too sugary sweet cocktails are the only aspect of the meal that didn't adhere to my idyllic dining experience. And for a special treat, go on your birthday (or pretend it's your birthday)--the Thai birthday song is as good as their Pad-See-Ew. Well, almost.
