If you were sad when Coconut Midtown closed, cheer up. It’s back, with a different name, Drunken Noodle, and a slightly different menu.
I stopped in for lunch last week. The menu had a helpful “V” next to all the dishes that can be made vegan, which made ordering very easy. I looked at the appetizer listings, hoping to get the vegan cream cheese wontons that Coconut Midtown used to offer. Unfortunately, they are not available at Drunken Noodle.
So I went straight to the entrees and decided to order the pad thai with tofu. The plate of food that came out of the kitchen looked like enough to feed a family of four for a week, so it’s probably just as well that I didn’t get an appetizer. The pad thai was delicious — rice noodles, bean sprouts, carrots, broccoli, tofu, and peanuts. It was still good the next day when I had the leftovers.
