We’d eat at Bangkok Bar daily. It’s quick and affordable, and the Thai food is better than you’d expect from what is essentially a food court in the bottom of a massive office building. For $12, you can get two dishes with a side of rice (the creamy chicken curry is especially good), and there are a couple of appetizers on the menu like extremely crispy chicken wings. You’ll hear an audible crunch when you bite into them, and you’ll inevitably want twice as many as you order.
