Pa Ord, similar to Sapp Coffee Sho,p specializes in noodle soups. Especially the infamous blood-ridden Boat Noodles.
But what they also have is their very own Tom Yum Noodle soup, which I think is unique and very flavorful. Step aside, blood, there’s a new Sheriff in town.
Pa Ord is a very basic, zero-ambiance joint located in a Thai Town strip mall (aren’t they all?) where you go if you want to eat and run. Not to chit chat over a Thai iced tea as you’ll be tripped over and subtly encouraged to leave.
They have an awesome Pad Thai if you’re feeling especially gringo but the Crispy Pork with Chinese Broccoli is a must order item which will quickly redeem yourself as a knowledgeable, almost-kind-of-Thai-in-origin individual and that could buy you an extra 15 minutes of loitering time.
Cash only yet prices are cheap. Bun Boy’s Tip: Try not to audibly haggle over the smallest gratuity you could possibly leave in front of the servers. I’m doubtful that would ensure a enjoyable return visit.
Sorry, that was more a note to self.
