It is brown rice noodles (because we’re currently doing the sugar free experiment again and loosely avoiding refined grains) and spiralized veggies (because veggies in noodle form feels like more noodles) and a super tangy-delicious Pad Thai sauce that you just shake up in a jar in about five seconds flat, and peanuts that almost instantly start to soak up the sauce, and a gently scrambled egg that kind of cream-ifies the whole thing. Luke Holloway introduces a New Type of Karambit!? A Deadly Thai Edged Weapon!!!

This family-owned neighborhood spot at Pico-Robertson isn’t just on this list because the food is excellent. It’s on this list because it’s pretty romantic too. With white tablecloths and a glass-enclosed wine rack in the back, Si Laa has a more upscale feel than others on this list. Prices are still reasonable, the waitstaff is insanely friendly, and pat yourself on the back - you just nailed date night. The crispy duck and “hidden treasure” are must-orders.

When it comes to flavor profiles, Thai food is as distinct and polarizing as they come. Spicy, sour, sweet and savory are all in play, and can (and will) be used simultaneously in a single dish. With a vast culinary tradition that varies significantly by region, the country of Thailand produces some of the most fascinating and craving-inducing food on the planet, and Los Angeles's huge Thai community (and fans of Thai food in general) have been able to sustain one of the largest thriving Thai food scenes in the country.
Students in particular swarm to this intimate U District restaurant for the handful of savory offerings that range from the mellow khao mun gai, with its poached chicken over ginger rice, to the fiery pad krapow gai kai dao, with its minced chicken, Thai basil, and chiles. Not spicy enough? Bold diners can request the signature super hot sauce, with knowledge that cooling relief from the heat will come from the shaved ice desserts with an assortment of tropical toppings.
People flock to Pok Pok for the legendary chicken wings: they’re deep fried, smothered in sticky fish sauce, and make up more than 30 percent of the restaurant’s sales. But they stay for the coriander-rubbed grilled boar collar—and the whiskey. James Beard Award–winning chef Andy Ricker may be a 6-foot-2 white dude from Oregon, but his ever-expanding empire (seven restaurants in Portland and New York at last count) and fluency in Thai suggest his food holds its own with the Siamese. The original Pok Pok started as a bare-bones shack with a single-digit menu. Today, the expanded restaurant emphasizes northern and northeastern Thai street food, complete with an arsenal of Chiang Mai sausage, fiery buffalo larb, spicy green papaya salad, and coconut curry grilled corn. Mango Tree - Thai Restaurant in Belgravia, Central London

At Khao Kang, there is a curry soup called kang som pla, packed with shreds of pickled bamboo shoots and fish, that is absolutely atomic. It’s spicy, even for this restaurant, where, as a rule, the food gets hot to the point where regular breathers are necessary (unless you grew up popping bird’s-eye chiles into your mouth for sport). But the soup is also tantalizingly sour, courtesy of tamarind; a hint sweet to cut the chiles and tartness; and engrossing enough to compel you to keep at it despite the shellacking you’re receiving. The steam-table restaurant is what you might call a curry-and-three, named for and in the style of Thailand’s raan khao kaeng restaurants. But the cooking is vivid, varied, and homey in a way that you wouldn’t expect from a steam table. Plus, the turnover is quick, so the dishes don’t wither away. There’s no set menu — just ten or so unmarked dishes with an emphasis on curry — but don’t worry: The kitchen’s batting percentage is pretty close to perfect. You can expect dishes like squid coated in dry spices; sour sausage and eggs; pork with basil; chicken and pork larb; and tom kha gai or chicken, coconut, and galangal soup. Make sure to round your palate with a milder dish (your mouth will need the relief) like glass-noodle stir-fry with egg or a sweetish fried-pork preparation called moo tod. Desserts such as Thai crêpes and coconut-milk sticky rice are another strong point, and there are a few drinks (Thai coffee and tea, a dragon’s-eye juice that tastes like the nectar of Haribo) tumbling around for cooling down your mouth.

The other late-night option when all the tables over at Thai Patio are full, Ruen Pair is ideal for that 2:30am run when you’ve got a friend who’s only ever had pad thai, and another friend who’s got a hankering for rabbit feet. The menu at this restaurant is expansive, and no matter how much experience you have eating Thai food, you’ll find something for yourself here. Just make sure to order multiple salty egg and turnip omelettes for the table - everyone will agree they are life-changing. Sénégal : Dans les coulisses de Yum Yum l'enseigne de fast food sénégalaise
SriPraPhai holds it down in Woodside as the resident OG Thai food destination. Haters will tell you there are better authentic Thai places, and, in a way, they’re probably right. Everyone likes their Thai a little different (and it’s cool to hate on the champ). They got a remodel a few years back, but the food here is still the same. Get a curry, and get some soft-shelled crab, and don’t miss the watercress salad. If sweet sausage salad sounds good to you, congratulations: you’re a normal person. Get it. Ask for your dishes “Thai spicy” then open your mouth and hang your head out the window of the 7 train on the way back to the city. That’ll help. My Secret London - Stoke Newington

Having never cooked Thai food or visited Thailand, chef Mark Fischer found himself in a bit of an ah-jaht (Thai pickle) when he decided to open a Thai joint. But after staging at Michelin-starred chef David Thompson’s Sailors Thai in Sydney and multiple research trips to Thailand, Fischer was able to create an experience that is neither authentic nor fusion nor copycat. Rather, Phat Thai is a shameless love letter to Thai cuisine. The green curry with chicken and the pad thai (also called phat thai, hence the name) are each a triumph of flavor. Phat Thai makes its curry pastes in-house—a feat requiring 20 pounds of Thai chiles each week. Wash it all down with chilled Singha; the restaurant buys more than anyone else in the state.

We dropped in for lunch and it was a delicious surprise with excellent food. The Tom Yom soup is delicious. The spice was perfect for level 2. Their pad Thai was excellent. The chicken satay was well done and I could taste that the peanut sauce is homemade. They have a unique dish Malay vegetable. You may not find it in other Thai places. Loved the taste. They seemed busy with crowd so the wait was little longer than expected. But for a small mom and pop shop, that is understandable with a big party there. Enjoy your food there.

Kai jeow is the unsung hero of Thailand. Every Thai kid has grown up on this wok fried omelette, which can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients. The two fillings I love most are the moo sab -- garlicky, peppery ground pork -- or nam -- a sour, fermented Thai sausage. The trick to getting a perfect kai jeow is cook over very high heat, resulting in a crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside egg dish. You’ll never be able to go back to regular omelettes after this. Thai Fishcakes competition - Gordon Ramsay
A prawn dish of gung pao nahm phrik mapraow, was a first course with an unexpected kick to it at the end. A green papaya salad with beans, peanuts and tomatoes was a refreshing touch between the spicier courses. To finish, salted palm sugar ice cream may not sound like anything special but this is one of the best desserts in the city, in both Thai and non-Thai restaurants. Fantastic, authentic food, great service and ambience, Som Saa deserves all its accolades and repeat visits from all Thai food lovers.

Nahm was the first Thai eatery ever awarded a Michelin Star, a prestigious honor which it held for nearly a decade before losing last year. I’m not sure why, since I ate at Nahm again two months ago and it was as good and well run as ever, but Michelin can be quite fickle. Not that it matters - you should not go to Nahm for this increasingly unimportant distinction, but rather because it is both excellent and truly unique.

Lum Ka Naad in Northridge might be a bit of a hike, but it’s worth it. The modern restaurant has a big menu, but you’re narrowing it down to two sections: “Northern Cuisine” and “Southern Cuisine.” These are the dishes specifically from the owner’s home regions, and they are incredible. Start with the turmeric shrimp soup from the South and work your way up to the kang ho in the North (essentially drunken noodles with vegetables in a curry rub). Delicious food and a geography lesson. Everyone wins. London Good Street Food. Thai Restaurants in Camden Market, Camden Town
Having received rave reviews for their east-end pop up two years ago, Chef Andy Oliver and business partner Tom George found a permanent location for Som Saa just down the road from Spitalfields Market. Som Saa, in an airy, former warehouse with exposed brick, has a buzzy atmosphere and hurrah, despite being on the edge of hipster Hoxton, the music is very cool but not too loud. We opted for the tasting menu which proved to be an excellent choice with mu hong, a southern style soy braised pork belly, as one of the highlights.

This longstanding Lynnwood restaurant's “secret” Thai menu (available only in Thai language) is where diners will find kuay teow rhua (boat noodle soup) and goong pad sataw: shrimp with cluster beans (aka petai or stink beans). Also fantastic is pad gra pow, made here with holy basil and ground pork or, by request, “moo grab” style with crispy pork belly topped by a fried egg. Laab Meatballs Recipe ลาบทอด - Hot Thai Kitchen
Chef Haidar Karoum and restaurateur Mark Kuller (the duo behind Proof and Estadio) always planned to open an Asian restaurant together. After heading east to eat their way through Bangkok and Chiang Mai in 2012, they returned to D.C., where Doi Moi (meaning “new change”) was born. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant overlooks bustling 14th Street and features a large open kitchen paying tribute to the culinary traditions found throughout Southeast Asia—and its Thai dishes are among D.C.’s finest. You’ll agree if you order the khao soi gai, a spicy chicken and crispy noodle coconut curry with pickled mustard greens that takes three hours to make.

Pailin isn’t the most well-known name in Thai Town, and its dime-sized space (there are maybe eight tables total inside) isn’t going to jump out at you while driving down Hollywood Blvd. But it’s delicious. It’s all Northern Thai cuisine here, and that means one thing - khao soi. For anyone unfamiliar with the dish, it’s essentially a curry noodle soup and god’s greatest gift to mankind. Pailin has the best version in town. The tiny space is colorful and kitschy and a perfect quick lunch spot. The spicy shrimp balls are another must-order.

You’ll find a slew of excellent Thai dishes at this Richardson strip mall spot, but the afternoon Thai tea service is not to be missed. Macarons from Haute Sweets patisserie, chai tea panna cotta, and an assortment of Thai teas (lotus, chrysanthemum, and ginger among others) makes for a delicious and fancy afternoon. Thai tea service is available on Saturdays starting at 2 p.m. and reservations are required.

If Night + Market is the hot prince that everybody wants to f*ck, Jitlada is the old Queen that’s done taking your crap. The decades-old Thai Town spot in many ways is the true heart and soul of LA’s Thai food scene. Its kitschy dining room is a must-visit (and a good spot to catch a celebrity) and its massive Southern Thai menu has absolutely zero regard for your pretty little spice preferences. Plain and simple - Jitlada is for the big boys and girls. But those who stay will be rewarded with some of the best Thai food in this city.

P.F. Chang’s Chicken Pad Thai is a recent recipe addition to the menu. I ran a few tests based on a corporate training video that was posted online which gives away the basic recipe and cooking methods, but with all the ketchup it was too inauthentic for my tastes. If you would like me to make a copycat of the recipe I’d be happy to give it a try, but I’m pretty confident if you all love authentic pad thai, you will love this recipe.

Since 1993, chef-owner Nok Suree Suksudecha has been serving San Diegans authentic curries at Amarin Thai, which was awarded best in the city by San Diego Magazine’s readers and critics alike. Chef Suree specializes in vegetarian dishes like tofu tod (crispy fried tofu served with Thai sweet chili sauce and crushed peanuts) and classic hot and sour tom yum soup. But her Mambo Mambo chicken (a hot pot of stewed chicken and ripe mango in red curry sauce) is equally mouthwatering. Unlike at many American Thai spots, the wine list here rivals the food menu—and has garnered awards from Wine Spectator five years running. For a sweet finish, try the coconut ice cream. Mango Tree, Thai Restaurant London serving Authentic Thai Cuisine or Thai Food
Papaya salad is a pretty popular dish that many Thai food aficionados tend to gravitate towards. And understandably so! The typical som tam which is usually found in Thai restaurants is sweet and spicy, sour and refreshing, and contains nutty and crunchy elements. But the version most people overlook contains phu pala, or fermented crab, which adds a whole other element of flavor. Som tam phu pala still contains the fresh, crisp papaya you crave in a som tam dish but it’s paired with pungent, salty, and fishy crab that will no doubt convince you to order a second round.

Derived from the Thai word for delicious, Aroy, Aloy was chosen by the family to ensure customers know the renamed restaurant's reasonable prices and healthy ingredients will remain the same for years to come. With dine in lunch specials from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. every day and a host of gluten free and vegan meals, many find it hard to leave the Thai oasis in the city.

Hi! I just tried this but made a couple tweaks, just because I didn’t have all the ingredients. I was looking for a good base recipe and this is it! Thanks! 🙂 (My tweaks were really just using a bit of peanut butter to make the sauce creamy and have more body–since I didn’t have fish sauce, using spinach instead of zucchini, omitting the egg, and using sriracha! Oh, and squeezing a little lime juice into the sauce, too!)

You’ve no doubt passed Siam Sunset a hundred times and just assumed it was a closed down portion of the adjoining America’s Best Value Inn. But it’s very much open and home to the best traditional Thai breakfast in town. Open every day at 6am, this is where you go to eat some porridge and Thai donuts, sip on some instant coffee with angry old men, and feel like you are nowhere near Southern California.

Like Ayada, Chao Thai has settled comfortably, but not passively, into its role as a standard-setter for Elmhurst’s Thai scene. The owners opened a larger second location nearby, but it closed after a few years, reportedly because the chef went back to Thailand. It’s a decade into its run, but there’s still no liquor license — not such a bad thing when you can BYOB your favorite beer — and the dining room is still a tight wedge of a space. But who cares when the service is so warm (if still a bit hesitant about serving spicy or funky dishes to outsiders) and the food is this good? Ayada is where you go when you’re in the mood for curries; Chao Thai is the spot for Thai-style salads. The papaya salad is bright, refreshing, and not too hot; a lemongrass salad packed with chopped chiles, limes, and nuts is punchy and invigorating. Whatever you do, don’t sleep on the yam pla-duk fu, a salad of firm-fleshed young mango (or sometimes green papaya) with a lime dressing and ground catfish that’s been deep-fried into crunchy, wispy bits of fish. It’s one of Queens’ most thrilling dishes. Chao does have range beyond Thai-style salads. To begin, there’s crispy pork belly with Chinese broccoli and oyster sauce, and khao kha moo, that famous Bangkok street dish of stewed pork leg over rice. Here, the gravy is lip-smackingly thick, the tender meat best dipped in the nam pla prik that comes with it, and the rice fluffy.

I have something to confess: I’m not a fan of ripe mangoes, and therefore usually avoid the quintessential Thai dessert, mangoes with sweet sticky rice, but I love ruam mit. Ruam means “gathering” and mit roughly translates to “friends,” and it is a dish that is good to share. Ruam mit is essentially a delicious dessert gazpacho. It’s comprised of a sweet coconut milk broth that that has sliced jackfruit, toddy palm seeds, pandan and coconut jelly, and crunchy water chestnuts coated in tapioca flour all served over ice. It’s the perfect way to cap off a spicy meal. Cambodian Food Tour in Siem Reap!

Pad thai is made with soaked dried rice noodles, which are stir-fried with eggs and chopped firm tofu, and is flavored with tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper and palm sugar and served with lime wedges and often chopped roasted peanuts.[2] It may contain other vegetables like bean sprouts, garlic chives, pickled radishes or turnips, and raw banana flowers. It may also contain fresh shrimp, crab, squid, chicken or other animal products. Many of the ingredients are provided on the side as condiments such as the red chili pepper, lime wedges, roasted peanuts, bean sprouts and other miscellaneous fresh vegetables.[3] Vegetarian versions may substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce and omit the shrimp.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add the shallots and garlic and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pad thai noodles and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to curl and turn pink, about 2 minutes. Scrape the noodles and shrimp to one side of the pan and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the empty side of the skillet. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, about 1 minute. Add the scallions and toss everything together, keeping the eggs relatively intact. Add the fish sauce mixture and stir-fry until the noodles are evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pad thai to a platter. Top with peanuts, cilantro and bean sprouts and serve with lime wedges.

A kid takes over his parents’ family Thai restaurant on the Sunset Strip and turns it into the greatest Thai restaurant Los Angeles has. Tale as old as time, right? Hardly. What the people over at Night + Market (and its equally fantastic Silver Lake location) have been doing for the past few years is nothing short of incredible. The food is both traditional (grandma’s old recipes are still being used) and continuously pushing the envelope. And the atmosphere is one giant, beautiful party.
