I've been getting my dad to come into Hoboken when he has to leave the house for showings. We'll go out and either grab lunch or dinner. My dad always has a craving for Chinese food....he loves any meal for $9 that's tasty, and they closed down his go to place in Frisco, Colorado.
I prefer Thai food, so I took him to Sri Thai and we've been back a few times ever since. My favorite Thai place in Hoboken.
Started off with some steamed dumplings.
I stuck with the Kai Sup-pa-rod. Chicken with pineapple, cashew nuts, and thai chili sauce.
My dad even sprung for dessert. Some Thai custard.
If you're looking for a quick, cheap, tasty Thai meal, Sri Thai in Hoboken is great. I'd stick with the curry, or if you're with a group just get a bunch of the appetizers and small dishes to share.
I'm still trying to get dad to a nice restaurant. It's something I've been trying for years, but it's tough to get him to try new places. He is always always reminiscing about how he used to be able to get a lunch special meal for $7, and I don't have the heart to tell him that I was paying for $21 beers in Singapore. Times definitely have changed. I'll figure something out eventually. Pass along any recommendations you may have for my situation.
