There’s always a line down the block at Thai Tom around lunch time, they only take cash, and sometimes the staff will open the restaurant 15 minutes late just because they feel like it. Normally, these things would be kind of a turn-off, but not here. The noodles are always perfectly saucy with some added char marks from the wok. You’re in good hands ordering anything, and while a lot of the hype has to do with their pad thai, no need to order it. The pad see ew is way better.
