Chang Thai, Our Family’s New Favorite

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

My daughter continues to surprise me with her food interests. Recently (meaning, since she’s gone away to school) she’s learned to enjoy Pad Thai. She came home one weekend and said she wanted to find a Thai place nearby that could feed her need; did I know […]

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

This restaurant is still open, though its sibling in south Round Rock has unexpectedly closed.
