Thai Me Up - Jackson, WY

Has anyone ever noticed that Thai places have the most interesting names? No Thai! Thai Me Up are two of my favorites. I am sure others exist. Erica and I went here for our last dinner together in Jackson last Monday. The food and atmosphere were both first rate and recommended for Thai in Jackson. I decided to make the cold night warmer by adding too much chili peppers to my dish. Man did I sweat, but the noodles still tasted great.

We started with a thai egg roll. Heavy fried batter, and served pipping hot, there was plenty of goodness to go around. They served it with "peanut sauce," which was more like a sweet dipping sauce with peanuts.

I ordered my standard Pad See Ew, which was recommended over the Spicy Noodles. Erica ordered her standard Pad Thai. When it comes to Thai, we are very boring, but we know what we enjoy. My noodle dish was very good and had a generous portion of vegetables mixed in with the noodles. I prefer my Pad See Ew with lots of good sauce. This was a little light on the sauce, but that's just personal preference. I also wanted more spice so our server brought me the hot green chili peppers. I added a little too much. It didn't ruin the dish, it just turned up the temperature significantly. On the restaurant's scale I ordered a 3/5 spice level. Next time I'll go to 4 and see what happens. 

The service was great, the food pleasing, but the value a little to be desired. Maybe that's just Jackson, but $40 for two entres, one starter and tea should be less than that. In Chicago we go to noodle shops for $7-8. There are some benefits of competition. But since good Thai is hard to find in small towns, you go where you have to.
