Located in Weehawken, right before entering Hoboken and kind of in the middle of nowhere, sits Hi-So Thai, a Thai restaurant as its name indicates. We have been wanting to go there few times in the past, but the location did not really appeal to us. So, finally, we decided to go for dinner on a Thursday. The large place (bigger than it seems from outside) was not crowded at all. Ordering was fast and it started well, my deliciously refreshing Thai iced tea arriving within minutes.
Same speed for the appetizer, flaky crust curry puffs stuffed with potatoes, onions and various vegetables.
It was just ok and I regretted at this point that we did not go for the usual rolls or for the Thai sausage.
Then, our entrees took forever to come and we were definitely not the only table waiting. Jodi got pad see ew, these large noodles served with eggs and broccoli that are delightfully sweet. She asked for tofu with it.
I tried her dish first and found that it had a weird taste...
On my side, I got the chicken curry massaman, with coconut sticky rice.
The rice came several minutes after my dish, increasing my discontent about the kitchen (I figured they were short in staff, maybe because it was a weekday). It was a good dish, with lots of chicken and a nice kick.
The long wait discouraged us from having dessert, even if I was eyeing the mango with sticky rice that is my favorite dessert...Overall, it was an ok meal and with all the other options for Thai food in Hoboken (T Thai and Sri Thai are my favorites), I do not think I would go back...
