This upscale dig nestled on the corner
of Main and Williams puts its own unique
spin on Pad Thai, but it's hard to tell just
what that spin is. There's a mysterious
blend of curries and a less eggy flavor
than you might be used to. But the gener-
ous portions of tofu and green onions hit
the spot, as does the separate dish of pea-
nuts that you can spread at your leisure.
NOODLES AND CO.
Youknow you're not going to get truly
great Pad Thai from a place that also
makes Macaroni and Cheese and Penne
Rosa. While Noodles certainly serves up
some good eating, its Pad Thai doesn't
have that Southeast Asian blast of fla-
vor necessary for a quality dish. You get
watery, bland noodles with no spice.

No Thai! makes a valiant effort for
authentic Pad Thai. While clearly Ameri-
canized, the dish packs in an array of
tasty, fresh ingredients. For the iron-
mouthed, try challenging the spiciness
spectrum- No Thai! will win. The heavy,
extremely oily sauce goes down wonder-
fully, but then regret starts to take hold. A
satisfying - but physicallytaxing - meal.
In a restaurant that's also a family
home where Thai TV shows are blaring in
the background, you know you're getting
the authentic experience. And the Pad
Thaihas awarm, hearty, homemade taste
to match. With just the right balance of
peanut, egg and spice, it's well worth the
awkwardness of eating in a living room.
AND THE WINNER IS: SIAM CUISINE
LAST WEEK'S RESULTS:
Teresa Sullivan strikes a ninja pose as John Beilein looks up from his Pad
Thai, weilding his stainless steel spork. Sullivan lunges in for a nunchuck to
the neck. Beilein diverts the blow with his epic spork. He pulls a smoke bomb
from his Pad Thai and throws it at Sullivan's feet. Blinded, Sullivan can't
retaliate. Beilein sporks his way to an ugly but well deserved win.
WINNER: JOHN BEILEIN
