I ordered while I was a few blocks away, and received the reply that my order was ready within a few minutes. I was a little upset, since I didn't want it to be cold by the time I arrived, and powerwalked the rest of the way there. Once I arrived I learned that it wasn't actually ready. It took another 10 minutes. Not quite the ideal GoPago experience.
The staff was friendly, and offered me water and a seat while I waited. They seemed to do a lot of take out business, with a steady stream of people coming through to pick up orders. The food looked pretty good, and I'd consider going back to try non-dessert sometime too!
|Sticky Rice with Ripe Mango. $4.00.|
Bang San Thai mixes things up a little and uses black rice. It was inconsistently cooked, some of it mushy, some of it very al dente. I actually kinda liked that, as it gave it some interesting textures, but I'm not sure that it was intentional. It was warm and seemed decently fresh.
On top was a little bit of sweetened condensed milk, always one of my favorite parts. There wasn't much of it however, and it didn't have any coconut flavor to it which I prefer. There were also some sesame seeds.
The mango was perfectly ripe, but somewhat sour. I don't blame them though, good mango is very hard to find in the US. I was spoiled by living in Sydney for a while, where the mango was incredible, so no mango here ever really lives up to my expectations.
Overall, this was ok, but not great. $4 is probably the cheapest I've ever seen mango and sticky rice listed though, so it was a good value for the money.
