    Tried the veggie bowl, wasn't impressed. Not a ton of flavor and tofu tasted kind of stale :/

    Pad Thai rocks. Soups also hit the spot on a cold day. Drink menu is very appealing, but so far I've only dined here for lunch, so I haven't tried it.

    Choose carefully, not many things are authentic but you can find something you might really enjoy. Hot pepper noodles and Tom yum soup keep me going back. Extra spicy please

    The Pad Thai at Penny’s Noodle Shop is simple enough, but it’s the sweet yet hearty and savory sauce that sets theirs apart from other run of the mill Thai joints. Read more

    The Tom Kha Gai soup is delicious, creamy coconut milk and the spice is just right! I could gladly eat that as a meal in itself...
