But is she still operating? Visited not long ago, around noon-time on a beautiful weekday, and the cart wasn't there. There was some construction along that part of the mall - so maybe operations were relocated (though I walked the length of the mall and didn't see it), or "on break." BTW, if you know some Thai she appreciates that. She's from the part of Thailand where "community" is arguably the strongest - which shows itself when the opportunity arises.http://thaifoodcartdowntownden...
Best Cart on the 16th Street Mall - 2010
Thai Food Cart
You'll wait for twenty minutes, maybe thirty, sometimes even forty before it's finally your turn to step up and order from She Who Won't Be Rushed, the conversational but don't-push-me Thai woman who single-handedly commands the sensational Thai Food Cart on the 16th Street Mall. And once you've made it to the front of the queue, decisions await: Do you want the heat level with your pad Thai "baby spice," "nice spicy," "medium high" or "fire?" And that last option you should take very, very seriously, because She Who Won't Be Rushed is also She Who Isn't Afraid to Kill You With Fire. Get the pad Thai — large or extra large — as well as a bag of seriously awesome crab wontons, drunken noodles and banana wraps, and then, when you're ready to go back for more, give one of the mall rats a few bucks to stand in line so that you don't have to.
