On our way to visit the Peabody Museum in Essex we had lunch at The Thai Place in the Museum Place Mall. There was no one there just before noon but filled up soon. The meals were good especially that it was a $6.50 lunch. It was all well prepared and filled up but not memorable. I had the Garlic Chicken with vegetables and white rice but the garlic was sorely missing. The other two dishes were a Vegetarian Fried Rice and the Sesame Chicken. This dish was probably the best of the three but just a bit too sweet but crunchy and interesting.
