There are Chinese duck rolls, bacon-wrapped scallops, and the Osha tartare with mango and avocado, and all of them seem more Wolfgang Puck, early-'90s fusion than Bangkok staples. But the food intends to be both traditional and modern Thai. Most vital is that it is always consistent and meals rock when you start with the silver noodle salad and share some papaya salad with kim chee (som tum muah) and equally spicy laht nah, where crispy noodles weave together shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, and bamboo shoots. Oh yeah, $5 mojitos on Wednesdays. Cuba and Thailand are pretty near each other, right? Ruan Thai Restaurant
Noodles are usually made from either rice flour, wheat flour or mung bean flour. Khanom chin is fresh rice vermicelli made from fermented rice, and eaten with spicy curries such as green chicken curry (khanom chin kaeng khiao wan kai) or with salads such as som tam. Other rice noodles, adapted from Chinese cuisine to suit Thai taste, are called kuaitiao in Thailand and come in three varieties: sen yai are wide flat noodles, sen lek are thin flat rice noodles, and sen mi (also known as rice vermicelli in the West) are round and thin. Bami is made from egg and wheat flour and usually sold fresh. They are similar to the Teochew mee pok. Wun sen, called cellophane noodles in English, are extremely thin noodles made from mung bean flour which are sold dried. Thai noodle dishes, whether stir fried like phat Thai or in the form of a noodle soup, usually come as an individual serving and are not meant to be shared and eaten communally.

What SriPraPhai did for New York, Little Serow for DC, and Pok Pok for Portland (and now conquering the world from New York to LA), Tom Silargorn did for our fair city when Lers Ros opened a few years ago in the heart of the Tenderloin. He not only made Thai cuisine relevant but opened our minds to the cuisine’s kaleidoscope of spices and proteins. Soon, visions of frog legs and the liver-intestines soup -- tom kreang nai -- danced in our minds. The only thing different today is that the lines are a little shorter, because there are now chic, snazzy outposts in The Mission and Hayes Valley. You surely know about the legendary stir-fried pork belly with basil and crispy rinds if you follow SF food at all, and go ahead and be boring: order the paid Thai. The city’s elite plate can be found here.
But about a month ago, the restaurant debuted a new Thai menu, under the name Baan Thai, in response to all the customers who came upstairs asking for Thai food. Instead of Americanized Thai staples like pad thai and panang curry that you'll find at Thai Tanic, the upstairs restaurant features a completely separate menu—no substitutions allowed—with more authentic dishes from across Thailand, including the more sour, funky, spicy flavors of the northern part of the country. It's one of the most unexpectedly delicious meals I've had in a while.

After that Thanksgiving dinner I didn't think my appetite would be returning anytime soon but here we are on a Saturday evening, 5 pm and Marisol and I were suddenly ready to eat... In one of those unusual moods where we don't know what we want, one of our regular places or something new, something simple or upscale, traditional american grub or foreign cuisine... we decided to stay local and we don't have much in the way of local (as in very close to our home). Rise is down the road and a delicious option (and at times very busy) but instead decided on Rise's old location at the Village Tower Shoppes. I know the place gets busy because it's next door to the yogurt shop we frequent but we were early so the place was expected to be quiet but still had half the tables taken. One of the waitresses welcomed us and let us pick a table. The interior is comfortable and kinda cute, modern but still utilizing asian style. The menu board highlighting the specials of the day were done in various colors of chalk (kinda reminding me of Sakaya Kitchen in Miami). The tables were finished with a rough edge to give them a good look and the mural on the wall is an impressive touch. We started with a couple sushi rolls... based on pictures I had seen posted on yelp, I expected better presentation (as most of the sushi dishes had colorful/cut fruit/veggies as garnish and many event had a flower but ours was simply our sushi; no presentation to impress). We had a SPICY TUNA ROLL which surprised me to only include 6 pieces but were good. Also shared a RAINBOW ROLL; the fish tasted very fresh. Even though taste was great and the freshness of the fish was excellent, I thought the rice was a bit loose (but not falling apart). My girl had a bowl of RAMEN with chicken... excellent broth and definitely a heart dish with noodles, chicken and veggies. I had a PAD THAI with shrimp (menu says prawn and I ordered prawns, but the waitress repeated back shrimp which I found to be funny; even though they taste the same, I wonder if she knows shrimp and prawns are different). My Pad Thai was excellent and not overly sweet. While we were eating our main dishes the restaurant filled up with customers... We finished our dishes while the table next to us were still eating their entrees... We sat very patiently for our waitress to return so we could have a to-go box and our check... The table next to us finally caught up and finished their dishes; while we still sat waiting for our waitress... They received their check from their waitress. I gestured with my hand for their waitress but she continued walking right past me. Confused, my Marisol and I just looked at each other dumbfounded. The other table has paid their bill and left and our waitress is still missing in action. Another family wanted the empty table so (2) waitresses began to clean the table together and at this point I'm annoyed/frustrated, so I gesture again and I say excuse me to clearly see and hear us... the waitress from earlier doesn't even acknowledge me and says something to the other girl. The other girl waves "hello" at me.... I know she was young but really?!?!?! After more than 20 minutes, Marisol gets up to go to our waitress who was only concentrating on tables at the other end of the restaurant. She says sorry but I'm done at this point... I just want to pay and go. Good food but disappointing service. Ludacris - Blueberry Yum Yum BEST QUALITY
Apples, pears, peaches, grapes, and strawberries, which do not traditionally grow in Thailand and in the past had to be imported, have become increasingly popular in the last few decades since they were introduced to Thai farmers by the Thai Royal Projects, starting in 1969, and the Doi Tung Project since 1988. These temperate fruit grow especially well in the cooler, northern Thai highlands, where they were initially introduced as a replacement for the cultivation of opium, together with other crops such as cabbages, tea, and arabica coffee. i was told to react to this video..
I got a sneak peek of this place this past week when I ordered from Door Dash because I frequently crave Pad Thai, but also sushi. And I also just so happen to like it delivered to me as well while I work from home. I ordered Prawn Pad Thai and Spicy Tuna rolls, super fresh and delicious! A friend of ours loves this place and is friends with the owner and I texted him to let him know how much I loved it. He insisted that we go back and try more of their food. We scheduled to go dine in with him on Saturday night. Saturday comes around and we are all so excited to try this place; we knew we were in for a treat. We had to try some of the specials, starting with the crispy Umami which were some kick butt greens. I spotted rock shrimp on the menu so I had to try it, it also had spicy mayo, so how could I pass that up? Also insanely delicious, I am a sucker for rock shrimp so you have to try this if you are too! Also got the Wahoo Truffle- another item on the specials list; this was so good- I could have ordered it twice. The main course, the big daddy of our meal was the sashimi platter- what a sight this was! Beautifully decorated and gloriously packed with all the best and fresh sashimi, from tuna to salmon to prawns, to cups of wasabi mixutures- I cant even name them all there was so much to choose from, I had to try it all! I also managed to spot the pineapple fried rice, absolutely delicious, one of our favorites at anothe restaurant; so we couldn't pass it up. It was fresh, contained crunchy nuts and a tang of pineapple to keep it interesting. I can't believe I waited so long to try this place! Don't let it happen to you!!

Khao phat nam phrik narok ข้าวผัดน้ำพริกนรก The name literally means "rice fried with chili paste from hell". The rice is fried with nam phrik narok, a very spicy chili paste made with fried catfish, grilled onion and garlic, grilled (dried) chili peppers, sugar, fish sauce, and shrimp paste. Here it is served with mu yang (grilled pork) and nam chim chaeo, a spicy dipping sauce.
Fit to Be Thai'd is truly a great place. The atmosphere is fun, relaxed and a great place to be after a long day of hitting the slopes. The service is not great. You should expect waiting over an hour for your meal, but that is the charm of this place. You learn to relax and enjoy time with your family. You really get a taste of the laid back Vermont vibe. The organization and effectiveness of Fit to be Thai'd is probably a 3/10, and things are always a big chaotic. But hey, that's the charm, right?! Anyways, the food is really good! Great food, good prices, good portions! I constantly come back here because of the delicious food and enjoyable atmosphere. I know this review may be confusing, but just know this: Fit to be Thai'd is not fancy, organized or elegant- but it's amusing, entertaining and honestly just a great place to enjoy a meal with your loved ones.

Sabuy Sabuy II gives each diner free scoops of homemade green tea-wasabi or banana-sesame sorbet at the end of the meal. That’s enough reason to BART over, isn’t it? But oh no, that’s just the beginning. Amidst stiff competition in the Albany-North Berkeley corridor, Sabuy Sabuy II stands out because it is one of the very few (maybe only) Thai restaurants around where you are encouraged to forgo the menu and let the ever-gracious owner Bart create your meal. A "Thai omakase", if you will. The regular menu is no slouch either, including way-better-than-it-sounds sweet fruit salad for a starter. The second Sabuy Sabuy gets the nudge over the University-adjacent original, which’s geared more towards take out (though it has a money patio).

From the coconut comes coconut milk, used both in curries and desserts, and coconut oil. The juice of a green coconut can be served as a drink and the young flesh is eaten in either sweet or savory dishes. The grated flesh of a mature coconut is used raw or toasted in sweets, salads and snacks such as miang kham. Thais not only consume products derived from the nut (actually a drupe), but they also make use of the growth bud of the palm tree as a vegetable. From the stalk of the flowers comes a sap that can be used to make coconut vinegar, alcoholic beverages, and sugar. Coconut milk and other coconut-derived ingredients feature heavily in the cuisines of central and southern Thailand. In contrast to these regions, coconut palms do not grow as well in northern and northeastern Thailand, where in wintertime the temperatures are lower and where there is a dry season that can last five to six months. In northern Thai cuisine, only a few dishes, most notably the noodle soup khao soi, use coconut milk. In the southern parts of northeastern Thailand, where the region borders Cambodia, one can again find dishes containing coconut. It is also here that the people eat non-glutinous rice, just as in central and southern Thailand, and not glutinous rice as they do in northern Thailand and in the rest of northeastern Thailand.

Now that you’ve had dessert, don’t forget Soi 4’s regular menu could hold its own with the best around the Bay Area (and since they have a Soi 4 in Scottsdale, AZ, it has to be the best in the Phoenix area, you’d think). Mustard leaf-wrapped shrimp and coconut called miang kum is the finger food you've dream of at cocktail receptions. Then go crazy for the red curry with pork shoulder and kabocha squash. Across the bridge, the owners also run Basil and Basil Canteen with nearly identical menus. Skip the decidedly non-craft cocktails at all the spots and have another round of Singha with the best bacon-free Brussels sprouts around. Crocodile Dundee -"Just making sure". Live it up.
A Thai Airways employee opened Bai Tong near Sea-Tac in 1989, where she created a place for homesick expats with her authentic Siamese dishes—and hospitable servers in traditional silk garb—like fragrant meang kum lettuce wraps, stunning crispy garlic chicken, a comforting banana-coconut milk kluay buat chee dessert. Since then she’s moved to more destination-worthy digs near Southcenter, a favorite for homey Thai that now has a casual Pike/Pine sibling with its own street food menu, where seared pork belly options abound. There’s plenty besides belly, though, like tender gems of mussel shrouded in crunchy layers of fried egg. Add sweet chili sauce and be transported, ever so briefly, to a sidewalk stand in Bangkok.

I have done a few searches, but generally it’s lean pickin’s. And most of them seem pretty farangified. I would be thrilled if the chef could be persuaded to share anything at all about these two recipes. It’s likely I’d have to figure out substitutions, but at least I’d be starting with good first principles. I was so smitten with all the food in Thailand that I’m going to experiment with adding several Thai staples to my garden this year. Lemongrass, ginger and galangal will all no doubt need to be grown in containers and brought inside during the winter, but I’ll give it my best shot and see what happens. Thanks in advance for any details you can ferret out!

Thai in the Marina -- doesn’t that just scream sake bombs with sugary pad thai? Yes, Benjarong Thai Cuisine is mere steps from the Pilates-meets-frat house zones on Chestnut and Union, but it’s really a world away from all of that, though it does have a bar with lychee martinis. It’s a calm, almost prim-and-proper tea salon-evoking room, serving the best pumpkin curry in the city (no, it’s nothing like a pumpkin spice latte). Take advantage of the lunchtime deal with a range of curry options preceded by refreshing rice paper-wrapped spring rolls bursting with mint, all for under $10. Score. Beauty Spa in London,Crouch End
Thai green curry is usually eaten with steamed jasmine rice, but if a restaurant offers fermented rice noodles with your curry, you can expect to be eating as you would in Thailand. This curry leads with a sweet flavor, followed by a little heat from chilies and salty umami from the fish sauce. What’s essential to know is that all Thai curries start with different curry pastes made up of entirely different combinations of fresh herbs and spices. Think about that the next time you reach for the takeout menu.

According to the Bangkok Post, aitim tat (Thai: ไอติมตัด; "cut ice cream"), was very popular 30 years ago (1986). It came in rectangular bars of various flavors, sliced into pieces by the vendor, who then inserted two wooden sticks into the pieces to use as holders. Aitim tat was made from milk, coconut milk, flour, sugar, and artificial flavour. The price was one or two baht, depending on the size.

Very good. I ordered the jumping wahoo roll, my two young girls each ordered a sushi roll with just imitation crab and split the chicken teryaki lunch special. My super picky 7 year old loved it and asked to come back. That's wonderful news for me because now I won't have to listen to whining any time I want something other than steak and Mac and cheese.... My roll was excellent, loved the combination of flavors. The place looks fairly new, it's well decorated, friendly service and the bathroom was spotless. That's huge, because if the bathroom is dirty, you know da*n well the kitchen is dirty. My only complaint is that the Salad that came with the lunch special was bland. Dressing was a bit watery and wasn't anything special. Other than that, the place gets two thumbs up. Eat Tokyo a Restaurants in London serving Japanese Food like Sushi and Sashimi
It’s a restaurant sweet spot: lantern-lit and nice enough for casual Saturday nights, able to feed the family without incurring a punishing bill. Most importantly, this little dining room on Ballard’s main drag preaches the pungent, spicy gospel of Thailand’s Isan region, using high-quality proteins, like a nam tok meat salad made extra savory with boar collar, or deceptively fiery Thai sausages.

Thai food is known for its enthusiastic use of fresh (rather than dried) herbs and spices. Common flavors in Thai food come from garlic, galangal, coriander/cilantro, lemon grass, shallots, pepper, kaffir lime leaves, shrimp paste, fish sauce, and chilies. Palm sugar, made from the sap of certain Borassus palms, is used to sweeten dishes while lime and tamarind contribute sour notes. Meats used in Thai cuisine are usually pork and chicken, and also duck, beef, and water buffalo. Goat and mutton are rarely eaten except by Muslim Thais. Game, such as wild boar, deer and wild birds, are now less common due to loss of habitat, the introduction of modern methods of intensive animal farming in the 1960s, and the rise of agribusinesses, such as Thai Charoen Pokphand Foods, in the 1980s. Traditionally, fish, crustaceans, and shellfish play an important role in the diet of Thai people.
