|10:48 am - Insert your own "chain restaurant" joke here|
Hot on the heels of the Vietnamese soup restaurant called Pho Shizzle (which, depending on who you believe, is either a Photoshopped picture or... another Photoshopped picture) comes Thai Me Up, a Thai restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
As well as in Manhattan.
And Auckland, New Zealand.
I won't even think of googling for "Fit To Be Thai'd" because it'd just make me weep.

Our local Thai restaurant is called "Tom Nuk Thai." Which, as far as I can tell, is neither funny nor clever. How about Tongue Thai'd?
With a little bit of stretching, it's not inconceivable you could have a restaurant called Pho Toa Mat

A well-placed reference to Thai places called "Phuket" belongs in here somewhere.
This isn't it.

Yes, that one is right by my house! I always make fun of it by making up my own little taglines for it:
"Hey honey, what are we having for dinner tonight?"
"Phuket. Let's go out to eat."
That makes a great advertising campaign!
"Don't know what to cook? Phuket!"
ps the gnomes have yet to return; thank you very much
I think they're all over Ontario, or maybe even all over Canada. They're pretty good.

I walk by Thai Me Up almost every day but I've never been in. I wonder if it's any good.
We ordered from there once - okay, but nothing special. Not worth a repeat trip with the thousands of other viable Thai places in Chicago.

I'm surprised no one's opened a "Get Thai'd!" restaurant for the Murray Head cred.
I get my kicks above the waistline, Sunshine.
Add Atlanta to that list.
(The food's pretty damn good, but far too pricey.)

Out here, there is a Vietnamese soup place called, "What The Pho" :D
