Thai Take Out

Miss Yunks’s BFF lives (sort of) across the street from the Thai restaurant Equator in Boston’s South End.  It’s been on our list of places to try and this weekend we had the time to do it.  We voted on take-out rather than dine-in and enjoyed a lazy Sunday night eating Thai food and watching movies.

I usually order pad thai as my first dish when trying a new Thai restaurant.  It’s like trying the pasta and marinara sauce the first time at a new Italian restaurant.  It’s the cuisine’s claim to fame.  If the pad thai is good, like if the pasta and sauce are good, then chances are the rest of the menu will fall in line and also be good.

Equator’s pad thai was very colorful.  I like a pad thai with a lot of vegetables.  My first bite was not very flavorful, but as I dug deeper into my take-out container I found the sauce and the dish tasted better.   The tofu tasted good but there wasn’t a lot of it.  I’ve noticed lately that restaurants are skimping on protein for vegetarians.  In vegetarian pad thai, I want there to be as much egg and tofu as there is chicken in chicken pad thai.  Vegetarians are hungry too, restaurants! I ate about 1/2 or 3/4 of the pad thai and was full, but not really satisfied.  BFF was happy with her dinner of steamed chicken and shrimp with vegetables.

If you’re in the neighborhood, Equator will satisfy your thai craving; however I prefer House of Siam, which is also conveniently in the same neighborhood.
