We ordered an appetizer, but I have no idea what it was named or what it contained. Some sort of crispy dried shrimp, coconut, and peanut mixture on top of a leaf that resembles cabbage, but isn't. I do know that it sure was tasty! Here's a photo; maybe one of you can solve the mystery:
For entrees, I had Stir Fried Eggplant with Chili and Basil and Caro went for the classic, Pad Thai.
Both were delicious! I liked Bok Dua and would definitely go back- the extensive menu listed several dishes I would like to try, although they don't offer my favorite- drunken noodles. Plus, the prices were grad-student friendly. I must give the caveat that I've never met a Thai restaurant that I didn't like, so Bok Dua isn't all that different from Brown Sugar or other Boston Thai places, but with its good food, friendly service, and low prices, it's definitely worth a visit.
