Dayton.com doesn't have an e-delicious machine to test the pad thai from Thai 1 On's food truck. We have something better: our staff. We use our highly refined culinary prowess to test what's out there to steer you to food worth your hard-earned dollars.
The pad thai serving was the size of a mountain, loaded with rice noodles made slurpy with fish sauce, citrus and other spices.
The spice levels are lil bit, medium, hot and Thai spicy. I asked for hot and was pleased with the amount of chili pepper heat packed in every bite. Order it veggie for $6, chicken for $8, shrimp for $10 or a combo of chicken and shrimp for $12. Me? – I got the shrimp and counted six nice-size pieces.
To cool off my tongue, I also ordered the Mango with Coconut Sticky Rice dessert for $5. It’s like a fruit cobbler, but more exotic. It won’t surprise me if I dream about this dessert, it’s so good.
My favorable experience at Thai 1 On isn’t unique. On its Facebook page, the mobile restaurant has a rating of 4.8 stars out of a possible 5, based on 60 reviews.
