Did you Thai one on last night? We did, too. We sat in our jammies and tucked into some Chicken Pad Thai (Thai noodles stir-fried with crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, onion, scallion, and egg) and Papaya Salad (grated green papaya, hot chili peppers, peanuts, tomatoes, string beans, and lime juice) from this reasonably-priced resto. Lily Thai dishes out grub all around the 'Burg. $10-$20 minimum depending on location.
