Thai X-ing

Four chairs, one table, A+ decor, and the best Asian food in D.C.  Nothing nearby comes close.  Staff = 1, so you must call not only for reservations, but indeed hours in advance with an actual order so he can start making your food.  I loved the salmon in red curry sauce, the pad thai, the larb, and some amazing chicken dish with the guy’s last name on it; the drunken noodles are recommended as well.  But I am not not not saying the other dishes are worse.  515 Florida Avenue, NW.

I’ll never view the theory of the firm in the same light again.  Monitoring doesn’t work, and who needs division of labor anyway?  The coolest place in DC right now, by far.  Here is the menu.

How do they have delivery if they only have one guy? (How does he make any money at those prices if he can only handle one meal at a time, with hours of preparation?)

Hmmm, interesting, since I’m starting a micro-catering company with a very similar approach: no employees, very small events only. But my prices are going to be MUCH higher than what’s on that menu. 😉

He gets cheap labor (most of what would be employees volunteer in exchange for meals). The city paper did a piece on him (and came to similar conclusion (which is probably yet another reason why Tyler had to wait so long). Tying into the overlycomplicated post, I think too many entrepreneurs vastly undercharge for their services in the beginning.

we called at 7:30. they said one hour. an hour and a half went by, no food. I called back, they said it was alomst done and out the door. 40 minutes after that no food. call again, they say they still have another entree to make. lies lies lies. This was an order for two, not a dinner for 50. It’s 9:45, and still no food. I understand that good food can take time. but 2 1/2 hours? for thai food? Komi didn’t take this long for the chef’s tasting menu. And they were out of thai iced tea. How does a Thai restaurant run out of Thai iced tea?
the food finally showed up at 9:56, 2hours and 23 minutes after we first called. food was good, but so not worth the wait.

資金を増やそうとするのに不動産投資をするのが手っ取り早い。日本で不動産で東京 賃貸をさがすのはきわめて難しくシステム開発は日本の会社が良い。
