Why This Town Blows Goats #3,498

Yes, Rochester, Minn., has been my locale of employment for the last eight years and, yes, I own a house in the city. None of that means I particularly like the city.

And here's a good example why:

Where's the Thai restaurant?

If there was one thing that I could add to Rochester to make it a better place for all, it would be a Thai restaurant.

Why doesn't this city have one? Thai food is very popular in big cities like Minneapolis and Chicago. There are even sometimes two or three Thai restaurants on the same street. Here in Rochester, you can't get any!

Thai food is so delicious, and I personally feel that Rochester is missing out on a wonderful dining experience.

Katie? Dear, dear Katie. You dipshit. Rochester DID HAVE A FANTASTIC THAI RESTAURANT UNTIL LAST MONTH! It was called Phnom Penh. It was a combination Thai/Cambodian/Chinese establishment with a wonderful owner and some smoking hot Asian waitresses. The food was about the best Asian cuisine you could get south of the Cities. And you know what, Katie? It closed because NO ONE WAS EATING THERE, while next door, "The Ranch," which serves God-awful "Western" cuisine, was packed to the rafters with cellulite-laden patrons who were one heartbeat away from a major coronary.

So, Katie? Instead of writing a letter to the editor to the Post-Bulletin, pick up the damned phone book next time. Mmkay? Oh, and in case you still want Thai food, there is another joint in town that serves Thai, although nowhere near as good as Phnom Penh. It's called "Soriya," and it's near Hy-Vee and Mickey's Saloon.

Me? Bitter? Nah.

Phnom Penh was the shit. Girlfriend and I went there after reading about it on your blog. It will be missed.

The owner hinted that she may open another restaurant closer to downtown, but we'll have to wait and see whether that comes to fruition.
