my hope (key) is crushed

another one bites the dust. hope key, the-hole-in-the-wall, hong kong-style, open-so-late-but-oh-so-good chinese restaurant has fallen to the evil clutches of being converted to yet another thai restaurant in arlington, va. i performed a random search (somewhat legit), and found there are more thai restaurants in arlington than any other kind (excluding american and pizza).

i’ve been going to hope key for the past 4 years. i dare to say it rivals any chinese restaurant in the area — chinatown in dc has no chance. hope key’s ownership changed about 1.5 years ago. but only a month ago through this thai changeover, this management decided to spruce the place up with new tables, carpet, neon lights and replaced the noodle wok and hanging ducks w/ a fully-loaded bar (coz you gotta have a martini with your curry sauce or pad thai).

sigh…now it’s not so special…and where am i going to get my chicken chow fun at 2 AM? any suggestions???

    Yeah, what’s up with that? I mean, how many Thai places does Arlington really need, anyway?

    My friend and I ordered from China Express a couple of weeks ago- that was pretty decent.
