Why God, Why?

On Friday, September 28, I wrote (in reference to the new restaurant moving into 999 Manhattan Avenue):

I swear to god if this is another Thai restaurant I will fucking flip out.

Guess what, folks?


This brings the number of Thai restaurants on Manhattan Avenue to FIVE. Why can’t Greenpoint diversify a little and get a Vietnamese, Burmese* or Cambodian restaurant? Why does this tiny (and otherwise innocuous) country tyrannize my neighborhood with its cuisine? What did we ever do to them?

Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to the kitchen to give myself a pre-orbital lobotomy.

With a chop stick.

*Which is incredibly delicious, by the way. If you’re ever in Manhattan check out Village Mingala in the East Village or Cafe Mingala on the Upper East Side.

  2. i know! i mean i think weve bought enough pad thai, dope and underage whores to pay for the second indochinese war, “neoliberal” reforms and military coups about a million times over…but then again im pretty sure god made buddhists to be our food or something anyway so you never can tell…

  6. I would kill for some good Indian food. Imperial Palace was pretty bad, and closed now.. And obviously some Mexican. At least Creek/Cave delivers to Greenpoint.
