THAI FOOD IN MEXICO CITY
Here's a tip for the Thai-food-deprived out there--something we just discovered today. Lunch at Thai Spice (Sonora 49, near Durango in La Condesa) had us thinking we were back in Bangkok for a moment. The tom yum soup and the green curry were definite winners, and the lemon grass tea was a perfect beverage. The young Thai chef told us that it's an uphill battle with many Mexicans, who are naturally unfamiliar with the food. So, if you like it truly Thai-style (very hot) be sure and mention it to the waiter. Go for lunch--they close at 8 PM.
