Thai X-ing 2

I wandered in yesterday to inform the owner, Taw, that the apparently Thai X-ing’s only on-line menu is going to go bye-bye fairly soon because I’m switching servers. The menu sits on a different server than the blog and I do get a few hits from folks looking for his menu.
It was a bit of a surprise to see that Taw has hired a guy. My earlier ventures into Thai X-ing were a Taw one man show. I blamed the solo job on the slowness of the food creation. It may have had something to do with it. But last night, there was a blue eyed assistant in the kitchen and behind the cash register helping out. I ordered and wandered out to drop my stuff back at the house. I came back with a book in tow and didn’t have to wait terribly long for my order.
Taw remarked that the neighborhood is growing and that he gets a lot of orders from my street. Well Thai X-ing was a topic of conservation at the Christmas party held by our neighbors K&J. The secret I was told, is that when you call up to order and you are told that it will be ready at say 6:00, 6:00 is when you leave the house to pick it up. And if you are in a hurry, don’t bother. Go-go rush-rush crackberry addicted patrons will just find it frustrating. Anyway, we all had a Thai X-ing story.
At some point I will update the menu as it has changed slightly. For one, the salmon red curry is $10 something, not $8 something. Also his hours have changed. Instead of being open for lunch and dinner, he’s just open for dinner. I guess there wasn’t a big enough lunch crowd in the hood to keep it open in the day.
