Erawan Thai Cuisine in Chinatown

Adam Erace checks out the new Chinatown location of Erawan Thai Cuisine, the Thai restaurant whose Center City location has been feeding hungry devotees since 2007.

Aside from the lackluster shrimp/broccoli sitch and the po tak, everything else Erawan delivered really delivered: fat shrimp in nests of refreshing silver noodles tossed with celery, cilantro, red onion and sharp drops of fish sauce; garlicky, lemongrass-and-lime-leaf-scented pad prik king, full of green beans that crunched like water chestnuts; a dazzling beef salad whose bold strokes of lime, mint and chili made it easy to overlook the errant unchewables lurking among the strips of tender flank.
