One Friday, a coworker suggested Baimon or Diamond Palace for lunch! A friend had told me that Coconut Station is the best Thai place in the area, so I recommended that we go there instead of Baimon. Coconut Station is underrated and less-known than the other Thai restaurants because it’s on Nogales Street kind of in the middle between Colima and the 60 freeway. It isn’t in a plaza with a lot of other restaurants, so you wouldn’t be as likely to stumble across it. I have now eaten here 3 times, and the food, service, and atmosphere have been great each time. It’s never crowded either!
Each dish comes with a salad! Lettuce, sliced green apples, strawberries, and pineapples! The dressing is kind of sweet and tangy.
I wanted to try something new, so I got the Pad Wen Sen for $8.25. It’s pan-fried glass noodles with a mix of cabbage, broccoli, carrots, and tomatoes, onions, eggs, black sweet soy sauce, and shrimp! It also came with chicken, which was a nice surprise! The noodles were a little too chewy and the vegetables too crisp for my liking, but my stomach was nicely satisfied.
