It was 9:30 p.m., 4th of July – and they were open. This is my first time at Panang Restaurant. Outside, their signage says “Thai Cuisine”. On the windows are posters saying “Sushi Bar”, “Chinese Cuisine” and “Pho”. I was a bit confused but since they were the only ones open in maybe 5 square miles, so what the heck!
At the entrance across the Cashier is a small gift shop. The setup is a medium-sized diner. The waiter gave me the menu and I was astonished. Their menu covered Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and Vietnamese – the best of the Far East world. I settled for fried tofu, calamari roll and soda. The fried tofu was standard, but the calamari roll came as a surprise. Each slice had a very good quantity of calamari with a thin roll of rice. And on top of each slice is a bite-size calamari! Most sushi bars would serve you rice with calamari, but this one is truly calamari with rice! Outstanding! They even refilled my soda.
The prices are inexpensive. The waiter was very courteous and attended to each table professionally. I will definitely visit again and try the Thai menu.
