Hoping to enjoy dinner (HA!), last night I ordered from my favorite local Thai place, Sala Thai. I decided to try the Pad Thai since I almost always get the Panang Curry. They didn't include chopsticks, as usual. Ugh. Why do I always have to request them? I thought as I begrudgingly grabbed a fork.
Today I was logging my calories from last night, and the pad thai I found in the database showed that I ate my entire day's calorie budget in one sitting. Horrified, I googled "Sala Thai Nutrition Information," hoping I'd only ingested half that amount.
While I didn't find the nutrition info, I did find their business plan. Thinking some kind of information might be in there, I scanned it for "Calories: only 300!" when this caught my eye:
A few things to note here:
- When I was little, a Thai guy rented our basement and made us food all the time. I'm fairly certain he taught me how to use chopsticks. Was this also a concession to an American expectation that his culture uses them?!
- It clearly states that chopsticks will be in the carryout bags. That has never happened. Hmph.
- Still can't find nutritional info.
- They liken their delivery service to Dominoes more than once.
- Oh wait, I just noticed this is in Detroit and not DC. It doesn't matter. I'm still confused.
Can someone please clear this up for me? For the record, I am in no way dissing Sala Thai except that I have to ask for chopsticks in my carryout. But now I feel really dumb asking for chopsticks in my carryout so I guess they were actually doing me a favor.
