Just a couple of comments about Ms Fox review of Koi Restaurant.
First the restaurant is not located "down the block from the Melrose Pub" as she suggested.
It's actually located---using NYC speak---2 doors "uptown" meaning north from the Melrose Pub.They share the same building and parking whether you drive up the ramp or seek covered shelter just "downtown" or south of the Melrose Pub are one in the same.
I drove around the block twice before I figured this out.
As per my norm when I checking a new Thai restaurant out---I always go to the Padthai.
If they can't get this right then IMO---nothing will be right.
Koi's Padthai was tasty---good value for the cash---but boring.There are no condiments on the table to ratchet up the heat if desired.One diner asked for some hot sauce and received the usual bottle of hot sauce with the rooster on the label that we see everywhere.
IMO--this restaurant will cater to Americans with delicate palates (not a bad thing,perhaps) but in the future I will continue to do my Thai dining in an Antioch restaurant that starts with a K and sorta rhymes with "sting". LOL.Bama.
Changing gears here as this is the "open thread" I will offer a few food comments.
Jim's Coney Island (just off of Harding) is indeed open.Passed by there the other day and lights were on and "open" sign was a flashing.
Tried Stone House Q last Monday and it was pretty good (IMO Martins is still the best).Parking might be an issue here as they only have about 6 spots.Overheard talk of parking on a nearby lot but saw no signage indicating such. I could have missed it.Plan on parking on the street possibly---again check the signage.
Finally--- I have recently had 3 meals at Kings Mkt on Antioch Pike and IMO it's the best oriental restaurant in Nashville.Good folks too.
I too share some of the same frustrations when trying to find where a food truck will be on any given day.I can't access the internet from work (against company rules) and don't have Twitter nor Facebook accounts.
I have often wondered why the trucks can't/don't post a schedule let's say on the Sunday before the work week starts.Most M-F workerbees would then know before thay leave the house on Monday where to snag lunchtime grub for the week.Just a thought.
Noted today that a Bolton's Spicy Chicken will open soon in the old O'Charley's location on Murfreesboro Road (just south of Murf Rd and Thompson Lane intersection).
This has probably been reported elsewhere but I will throw this out there.
Went by Jim's Coney Island for lunch today and it was closed.Noted FOR SALE signs on the door.
Did have lunch at Pupuseria Salvadorena and found the pupusas to be quite good.
PS is located at 340 Welch Rd just off Nolensville Road----basically it's on the street behind the Walmart that faces Harding Place.
Anywhere in W Nashville works for me.
I'm being a little selfish here for sure!
