There seem to be several cities with a restaurant called "Thai One On", including Seattle, Towson MD, and a chain of three of them in Toronto.
Once upon a time, about 15 years ago, my husband worked in Springfield, VA, and we lived in Parkville, MD. Every Friday night we ordered Thai food from House of Siam
, two doors down from his place of work, and we'd drive an hour and a half back to Parkville (north of Baltimore) smelling the food in the car. An hour and a half of smelling crab fried rice and not being able to pick at it (as it was in one of those foil trays rather than a carton) was pure torture. But well worth it once we got it home.
Their food is delicious, and while it's a very casual place in a big strip-mall, they have real Thai magazines to thumb through. The writing is so . . . pretty! lol At one point, I had to ask the waiter about an ad I saw. (One of the few that didn't involve breast enlargement.) There appeared to be a parade going on, with some folks in traditional costumes, confetti and banners, and the guy in front holding up in the air . . . a cat in a cage. In the corner of the page was a small picture of a dishwasher rack full of dishes. Now, I had to know. Turns out, it's a spring ritual to carry a cat through the streets. Brings the spring rains or somesuch, and this particular dish soap makes your dishes spring fresh. Who knew?
