Nicky's Thai Kitchen is on Penn Ave downtown. I don't know how long its been there, or how many times I've walked or driven past. Its through a narrow door (that you'll probably miss if you're not really looking for it) with all kinds of Thai statutes and sculptures, paintings, and art covering most of the walls. Its tight in there, but I feel like it added to the experience - I kinda felt like it was better and more authentic with more people around. Proximity also made it much easier to creep on everyone else's dinner choices.
After staring at the extensive menu, and then the additional special menu,for about a half hour or more, we were able to come to some decisions.

OnionHater: Pad Thai
EasyD: Shrimp Salad
Chickie: Pork Fried Rice
CDO: Nicky's Thai Sampler
|Vegan Duck Curry|
So the most interesting of choices was the Vegan Duck Curry. How on earth does that work, you ask? Its a Vegan duck, as in not a quack-quack duck, but a duck made out of something else. Then, you cook it in traditional Thai fashion with curry and veggies and you're now eating a vegan duck curry. Fascinating, isn't it?
