Little Thai Food Trailer

Underwhelmed. Saw some encouraging things on Yelp, but when it came down to it...I've had better Thai food. Today was my first visit to the Little Thai Food trailer on South First Street, next to the School for the Deaf property. Very friendly, and the food came fast.
I ordered the tofu spring rolls and chicken pad thai. The spring rolls are mostly vermicelli noodles; some cabbage and a bit of cucumber, and a strip of firm tofu. But no basil or mint or cilantro to give it any flavor. The accompanying peanut sauce was good; very thick, and very coconutty.

The pad thai wasn't bad, but it didn't have enough of the sweet and twangy flavor that I like. They do put scrambled egg in it which was nice, and some ground peanuts and bean sprouts on the side. But there was a lemon wedge for garnish.... why no lime?

With Thai Fresh also nearby, it's disappointing not to be able to get really good Thai food in the neighborhood. I'll stick to Madam Mam's.
