Last week on Westword‘s Cafe Society blog, a banner ad caught my attention: J’s Noodles & New Thai Restaurant was advertising that it had received 5280‘s Editors’ Choice for Best Thai.

That’s a half truth: Our praise is reserved for the original location–now called J’s Noodles Star Thai–on South Federal Boulevard. It’s misleading because, thanks to an owner split, J’s Noodles & New Thai (located on South Parker Road) is not nearly as good, and that restaurant hasn’t garnered any awards from us.
