A bunch of EC Boston students and their teacher had lunch last week at a Thai resteraunt. Check out this review of Pad Thai Café, the place where they ate!
The faculty and staff of EC Boston bring their own unique experiences to the campus, and finding the perfect places and events around town to suggest to students are a source of pride, and even friendly competition, among them. On May 3rd students from the Pre-Intermediate Survival Skills class met for lunch at Pad Thai Café, just a short walk down Boylston Street from the school.
“Pad Thai Café has the food that I remember eating in Thailand and I’m happy to offer that experience to my students who may have never tried Thai food,” Said Chris Ward, their teacher. “And I love watching the tears well up in their eyes the first time they bite into a red pepper!”
Xueting Wu (Erin), from China, said “I have never tasted Thai food before. The waiters were very friendly and I liked the environment.” Erin had a seafood noodle soup and she said it was “very delicious.” Pad Thai offers traditional Thai meals such as Suki Hang, Ga Pow Gai, and of course Tom Yum.
Monthicha Chnabuncho came to EC from Bangkok, Thailand. Her food was maybe “a bit sweeter” than she remembers the food in Thailand but that didn’t stop her from enjoying her meal. She may have enjoyed watching the effects of the spicy food on her classmates, as well!
There are many Thai restaurants in Boston, some even closer to EC than Pad Thai Café, but few of them offer authentic Thai food and some are laughably overpriced. This is just one of the hidden treasures in Boston that EC students enjoy every month as the faculty and staff work to offer fun, culturally diverse, and in this case delicious events and trips to their American experience.
