They've gussied the place up a bit and I noticed a few more "House Specials" on the menu, so perhaps I'll be able to talk the Missus into another visit.
I think Koon has hit their stride. In the past, no more surly service during my last couple of visits. They've got a nice mix of Gringo Thai and a couple of pretty nice dishes.....like the Chinese influenced simmered pork leg dish named Khao Karr Moo ($8.95).
A bit drier and tougher than what I had last time, but still nice sweet-soy flavor. The preserved vegetable really helps to cut the richness of the dish. Forget the sweet chili sauce.....rice is a must, though! The boiled egg was over-cooked and the yolk was dry as heck. But that's splitting hairs....this still hit the spot; though not quite a bullseye.....
