Takeout from Nakkara

I had a bit of a day, thus tonight's dinner was drunken noodles with chicken from Nakkara with a cold Stella Artois. This is my third visit to Nakkara (only one of them has been a dine-in experience) and I've liked the food everytime (I don't know if the first one counts for much as I only got tom kha gai soup, but it was some good soup). I may stick to takeout for now, though; when we ate there, it took us a long time to get our entrees. Granted, there was a large party of 6 or so, but that doesn't serve as much of an excuse when you've only got a handful of other tables.

Still, the food seems good across the board; for example, Charles has been hard-pressed to find good vegetable curry at local Thai places, but he found a very tasty version here. The menu is a bit strange as it offers an array of Asian dishes not just limited to Thai (Korean beef short ribs are definitely not something one would expect alongside panang curry).

I love takeout in general in all its packaged up glory, especially when I've got a 95% full DVR list to make my way through. I know I'm not the only one, so please share with me your favorite takeout places/options in your neck of the woods!

I am passing on the Brilliante Weblog Premio 2008 Award to you. You could pass some appreciation along to some worthy blogs if you like. 

Your posts have been most interesting, and I've added you to my blog roll. The movie pairing is particularily fun.

Tess, thanks so much! I'm such a newbie at this point that I will probably hold off on passing this along until I have made more food blog friends, but I really appreciate your reading my humble little blog. :)

Maybe it's because I'm hungry and it's a Thursday, but some pad thai and a Stella have never sounded better. Will give it a try.

Hi Esteban! Thanks for your comment, I'd love to hear about your favorite place for pad thai. I have yet to find a place that does it well (or at least not too sweet).
