It’s amazing how many free activities you can find in New York City. My friend Sam had heard about a free outdoor art exhibit in Washington Square Park, so we decided to check it out.
But when we arrived at the park, there was no art to be seen anywhere.
Stumped and unsure of what to do since our plans to see free art clearly weren’t going to happen, we decided to wander. We figured we would walk to Central Park and check out random stores along the way. We didn’t actually think we would make it that far, but somehow we did.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Manhattan, Washington Square Park is located around 4th Street and Central Park begins at around 60th Street. So yes, we walked really far.
Our stomachs began to rumble after all that walking, so we figured we’d stroll over to Hell’s Kitchen to find something to eat. We ended up at a Thai restaurant called Kare Thai.
I ordered the chicken pad Thai as my entree. Pad Thai is a common dish served at Thai restaurants that comes with sautéed rice noodles, egg, bean curd, scallion, bean sprout and ground peanut. Not only was this pad Thai good in taste, but it was only $10. I was amazed by the quality and quantity of food I received for that price.
It’s rare to come across an establishment with cheap quality food in New York City. I’d definitely recommend Kare Thai to anybody seeking Thai cuisine in the Hell’s Kitchen area.
