We went to Chao Praya thai near Hickory Ridge Mall yesterday. The food was awesome. It was definitely the best Thai food I have had in town. Unbeleivably good.
We also went to the international farmer's market (old Kroger at Kirby and Winchester)... mind boggling food selection.
After being out in hickory hill all day yesterday, I am going to have to say that it didn't feel like the hood that people make it out to be...just less white. There weren't gun stores, pawn shops, liquor stores and check cashing places like you find in the hood. (although as you go more west towards Mendenhall, they show up). More diversity than was there before, with non-english signs. Tons of foreign restaurants and grocery stores, lots of "Super Buffets".
less of the generic restaurants that are normally found near malls.
I am still try to wrap my head around the concept of a wheels and tire store inside the mall.
