Wok in the Park

After Thanh Do moved across the street to a larger space, several of owner Thom Pham's adoptive siblings (and former Thanh Do employees) decided to stay in the original spot and open their own Pan-Asian eatery, Wok in the Park. Wok's dining room feels airy and open, despite its small size, with a dream-like tree mural and paper lanterns to give it a festive feel. In terms of the menu, there's a lot of overlap with Thanh Do's, between the egg rolls, green papaya salads, hot and sour soups, curries, stir fries, and noodles dishes. Wok's menu is more pared down than Thanh Do's, and, in many cases, items are priced a buck or two cheaper (most entrees run between $8 and $12). Notably, all of Wok's food is MSG-free. The infamous cranberry cheese wontons, whose recipe was involved in a lawsuit between Pham and his siblings, are called Puffs in the Park at this location and they're as delicious as ever.
