Take-Out From Vieng Thai: Is It as Good as I Think It Is, and Better Than That Place in Fairbanks? Why Don't You Let Us Know
You know how when you move to a new neighborhood, you have to do all kinds of things "all over again, for the first time"? Like finding the closest store for grabbing a gallon of milk, or signing up at a new gym, and -- most important of all -- finding new neighborhood restaurants and bars?

Having recently moved out to the wilds of Oak Forest, we are on the prowl for "new favorites." We'd been to Plonk and a few other spots with friends over the years, so we turned to those same friends to ask about food. Specifically, we wanted "easy-to-eat-for-days-while-you-unpack-your-whole-life" take-out food. When they pointed us to Vieng Thai, I winced. "We haven't had really good luck with Thai in Houston. How about Chinese?" Our friends promised us the food was excellent, and warned us that the curries were pretty hot.
"Visually stunning," as Chef Ramsay would say.
