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).
