Pittsburgh, PA Edition: Papaya
I made a day trip to Pittsburgh in anticipation of an upcoming flight and went in search of a quick dinner.
Papaya hit that spot - it has both Thai and sushi, and that was enough to sell me.
The menu has a mash-up of Asian dishes - lettuce wraps, crab rangoons, curry, general tso's, pad thai and more.
While this may point to inauthenticity, I like the variety and being able to pick and choose my favorites from many cuisine.
The crab angels - or crab rangoons - are a must-have for me. Who can resist creamy cheese in a fried wrapper? Not me, clearly.
And pad thai is always comforting. I got this with shrimp, and it was quite tasty. It was heavier on the soy, but still a good flavor.
