We had another opportunity to visit Pan Pan. It’s been about two months since they have opened and we noticed a couple of changes when we went for lunch with a friend who was eager to try out some new fare.
The walls now display some very large painting. They are heavy and abstract and colorful pieces. I liked them and thought they added some interest. They are for sale. The paintings are a bit much for the space. but I expect they will be exchanged over time.
Our friend, a woman in her late 70′s, likes her food without spice, so we carefully picked out the Vegetable Stir Fry, which she simply adored. She ate every morsel with complete delight. Haha. Nice. That’s says it all, doesn’t it? I asked if I could have the Pad Thai, my fav, without too much spice, because last time it was like a blast furnace in my mouth and although I like that sort of thing, it is a bad mix with my meds and causes tiny mouth sores that last a few days. Sorry about that.
Well, the wait service person told me that the Pad Thai was not hot at all and never was. I was like Hey! What! Well, after some questioning the wait person admitted that the chef had changed since the first time I was there and the new chef did not heat up the Pad Thai in a spicy way. She was right, the new Pad Thai was very mild indeed. Dh had his usual Thai Basil Chicken and reported that it was better than last time.
All in all a really nice authentic ethnic experience, and the prices are good, too. Thanks, Pan Pan!
