Last night, my boy and I were in the mood for some Asian flavors, so we hit up the newest place in the area for some take-out — Drunken Noodle. Located at 9 Park St in Essex Junction, VT, the Drunken Noodle
serves up tasty Thai cuisine. The ambience is much classier than its location’s predecessor, and the waitstaff is very helpful. You can eat-in or take-out.
They offer a selection of appetizers, salads, soups, stir-fried entrees (choose your protein and your sauce), duck entrees, curries, and noodle dishes. They also have lunch specials and desserts.
We highly recommend the crab angels (fried crab wontons served with a delicate sweet & sour sauce), the som tum salad (made with green papaya and carrots), the stir-fried chicken entree with spicy garlic sauce (tip: add rice to your order for an extra $1. you’ll want it!), or the pad woon sem (cellophane noodles with egg, bean sprouts, tomato, cabbage, onion, and carrots).
Service is quick, and prices are reasonable:
Appetizers – $4-6
Salads – $5-7
Soups – $3-4
Stir-fried Entrees – $9-11
Duck Entrees – $12
Curries – $9-11
