While many ethnic cuisines are domesticated to Western palates, Thai food may be the most bastardized in America. “We have the same basic Thai dishes over and over again, many of which have nothing to do with Thailand,” says Andy Ricker, the James Beard Award–winning chef behind the bicoastal restaurant empire Pok Pok, known for authentic dishes like charcoal-roasted hen with lemongrass and tamarind.

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.

The food at Nahm is unlike any you are likely to find elsewhere, and certainly not outside of Thailand. Considering that more Americans visit London than any other city outside North America, this presents a truly unique opportunity to have a meal dramatically different from all others. On my recent visit I took a friend who is a Japanese financial executive who has been living in London for two years but had never been to Nahm, and he was blown away, saying he would soon return with his family.

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!
Hi Paola! I love your recipes. I wanted to add (as someone that uses Miracle Rice a lot), you can microwave the noodles in order to dry them out and to greatly reduce their odor. I drain them in a sieve, then microwave them for 2 minutes. Drain the water released and then microwave for another minute or two. They’re usually pretty dry and have almost no odor. I know some people are against using the microwave and obviously, this method would not be for them. But for others, like myself, it is very fast, easy, and effective. *the length of time might vary on different noodles* Also, I have a 1000W microwave – as an FYI. i was told to react to this video..
Most vegetarians would be pretty angry if they found out after eating that their meal contained fish sauce. I would personally consider it on par with using chicken/beef broth. I’ve seen a recipe for vegetarian fish sauce (http://veganmiam.com/recipes/vegan-fish-sauce) and I’ve personally just swapped it out for low sodium soy sauce or a touch of miso in other recipes.

Not coincidentally, Nahm in London is Thompson’s flagship eatery (he recently opened a second location of Nahm in Bangkok. I’ve only been to the one in London). Many Americans are unfamiliar with Thompson since he has no restaurants or TV shows here, but he has probably done more than anyone to spread authentic Thai cooking outside of Thailand, and in addition to winning all sorts of awards and accolades, he wrote the definitive English language Thai cookbook, Thai Food, plus another on street foods of Thailand. When he expanded Nahm to Thailand - a country where he learned to cook, has lived many years of his life, and still spends several months annually in - there was some apprehension over a “foreigner” trying to cook Thai, despite the fact that he had previously helped run a professional academy for chefs there. To doubt Thompson’s abilities based on the fact that he is not Thai is like arguing that Mario Batali can’t cook Italian or Thomas Keller can’t cook French because they are American.

Take close note of the location: there appears to be at least three restaurants with the name Pa Ord Noodles, and not all of them are created equal. This particular location tucked away into the corner of a strip mall off Sunset has some of the best boat noodles in the business, and at incredibly reasonable prices. Diners can choose between thin or flat rice noodles, egg noodles or glass noodles and steep them in a massive array of soup bases and toppings. Be warned, portion sizes can be small so opt for the large if you’re feeling peckish. Popular Videos - Stoke Newington & Food
This is a favorite in my family, and for good reason. It’s a fried rice dish that’s been tossed together with kapit -- fermented ground shrimp and salt -- until the aromatic shrimp paste coats the entirety of the rice. Unlike typical fried rice dishes that are studded with meats and veggies sauteed all together, khao kluk kapit’s accompaniments are served as a myriad of toppings: sour, unripe mango, sweet Chinese sausage (the best addition in any fried rice), shallots, chilis, thinly sliced omelette, dried shrimp, and marinated pork. This makes for a dish that is equally colorful as it is delicious, and no two bites are the same.

Even papaya salad gets the fine-dining treatment at Uncle Boons, no surprise when you consider the restaurant’s husband-and-wife team (Matt Danzer and Ubon-born Ann Redding) hail from Per Se. Armed with a charcoal grill and rotisserie (no small feat in Manhattan), Danzer and Redding turn out smoky seafood plates with nam prik (Thai chile sauce). The crowd at this art-cluttered tavern is as varied as the menu, which is admittedly regionally unfocused, though it consists mostly of Redding’s family recipes. So it’s not uncommon for traditional massaman curry punctuated with green peppercorns (a drier version than you’re likely used to) and titillating lamb larb to simultaneously hit the table with unconventional mee krob with fried sweetbreads.

On 7 November 2017, a Google Doodle featuring pad thai was displayed in the U.S., Canada, Cuba, Thailand, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, and several countries in both Europe and South America.[12][13] Google celebrated it as an initiative of Doodler Juliana.[14] While she was researching how to prepare it, she aimed to show all the ingredients up close and with a colourful animation.[15] Thai Food What???
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.

Pardon the pun, but tourists go nuts for this stir fried dish. Perhaps it's the wildly contrasting textures of a dish that saut's chicken alongside roasted cashews, sweet soy sauce, onions, chilies, pepper, carrot and mushrooms. Perhaps it's the sweetening dash of honey that appeals. Do you really care? The important thing is that this dish works: it's simple but scrumptious, a little bit tame and yet still totally Thai.

Traditional pad thai sauce includes fish sauce, vinegar, sugar and tamarind paste. Tamarind paste is not easily found at a regular grocery stores so I substituted rice vinegar. If you would like to use tamarind paste, substitute about 2 Tablespoons in place of the rice vinegar in this recipe. I also added a big scoop of peanut butter to my sauce, because I think it gives the whole dish an added creaminess and boost of flavor that I love. Yumyum, Stoke Newington - Gordon Ramsay
So is Nahm the best Thai restaurant in the world? I have no way of knowing for sure. Is it the best Thai restaurant I have ever eaten at? Absolutely. And while there are lots of great restaurants in London, most have direct equivalents in New York and other major cities, while Nahm is so unique compared to anything here in the States that I consider it a must anytime I head across the pond.

Since 1992, Gene and Jay Potchana have been satisfying Dallas residents with bright Thai cuisine inspired by Jay’s mother, a cook just outside of Bangkok. Though the husband and wife have reconciled their dishes to tamer Texas tastes, the food is undeniably soothing—as is the restaurant interior, with its soft lighting, Thai art, and wooden screens. Try the tender tulip dumplings stuffed with pork and shrimp and Chiang Mai–style sausages perfumed with basil and lemongrass for proof. Don’t leave without sampling the fried-to-flaky-perfection whole red snapper topped with sauce that’s equal parts sweet and burn.

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.
Crying tiger, one of my favorite Thai dishes of all time, hails from Isaan, the northeastern region of Thailand. Isaan is known for having very sapp foods -- flavors that are strongly spicy, sour, and salty -- and serving every dish with a side of sticky rice. Crying tiger is no different; the grilled steak arrives with nam jim jao, a spicy sauce that is so hot it’s said to bring tears to your eyes (hence the name, crying tiger). Steak, sticky rice, and hot chili sauce -- what’s not to love? The Alex Pub Crouch End
Since it opened in the mid-’90s, Sripraphai has set the standard for New York’s real-deal Thai restaurants, marking the Woodside-Elmhurst area as the definitive Mecca and serving as a difficult-to-pronounce (it’s the owner’s first name) calling card for anyone who wants to show off what an adventurous and authenticity-seeking eater they are. If you expect to be treated as someone who knows the least bit about Thai food, the only answer to “Have you been to Sripraphai?” is a resounding “Yes.” The many-paged menu, with dishes both familiar and unusual from all over the country, can be overwhelming, and so encourages repeat visits, each with its own rewards, from the coconut-milk-free, slow-burn jungle curry to the horizon-expanding crispy watercress salad (for which the green is battered and fried, topped with cashews and dried chiles) to piles of spicy fermented Isan sausage.

Thai restaurants in New York are a dime a dozen, reliable workhorses scattered densely across every neighborhood, and most everyone has their go-to takeout spot: the one that delivers generally unobjectionable if unexceptional pad Thai and pineapple fried rice on the quick and cheap. It’s easy to mistake this mediocrity as defining Thailand’s cuisine. And so it can be genuinely life-changing to unlock the next level of the city’s Thai food: the more authentic, hyperregional, or at least bold, adventurous, and thrillingly palate-altering dishes offered by New York’s very best Thai restaurants.

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.
This spot may have slipped downhill a bit since its heyday as a hangout for the Thai Airways flight crews that came through Sea-Tac Airport in the '90s, but it was atop a high hill; that is to say, the quality remains good, all things considered.

This unassuming, cozy restaurant in Mount Baker is a mainstay for low-priced (and cash-only) Thai food. The pad thai has dried shrimp (as it should) and the green papaya salad has real heat (as it should). That salad is a perfect accompaniment to BBQ chicken and a side of sticky rice that comes in a cute bamboo basket. Bonus: Lao dishes on the menu.

If you’re looking for fully authentic Thai on the Upper West Side, we need to have a talk about your expectations. The Upper West Side is where you take your niece to the planetarium or where you go to a Purim party dressed as John McEnroe. Now that we’ve cleared that up, feel free to enjoy something from the wok at Land Thai. This isn’t in-your-face Woodside food, but they do have sticky rice, and the curries are excellent. The same owners run Pure Thai Cookhouse, but the seating at Land Thai is more comfortable. Also, they do a two-course lunch for nine dollars.

The late culinary bible Gourmet magazine put this off-strip treasure on the map more than a decade ago when it named Lotus of Siam the best Thai restaurant in America. Since then, chef-owner Saipin Chutima, who runs the restaurant with her husband and daughters, became the first Asian-born chef to win a James Beard Award for cooking the cuisine from her roots: Chiang Mai–style family recipes passed down from multiple generations. Diners wait hours for a table, vying for a taste of Chutima’s nam kao tod (a salad of crispy rice, fried peanuts, and sour sausage), nam prik nuhm (roasted green-chile dip), and catfish larb. Riesling pairs brilliantly with spicy food, which here is rated by degrees of hotness, and there’s an extensive list of German white wines to complement the 150-plus dishes—not to mention the steal-of-the-century $9.99 buffet lunch.

Diehard Thai fans make the pilgrimage to Issaquah’s Noodle Boat partly because Noodle Boat workers make the pilgrimage to Thailand annually, researching new dishes and making authentic chili paste to bring back to Seattle. Playfully named dishes like Queen of Banana, King of Garlic, Hot Meat, and “Whatever You Called?” can bring on serious heat by request. Recommended: BKK — Noodle Boat’s version of hor mok (curried fish custard), which is stir-fried rather than steamed.

The reason I brought Lao Table to San Francisco and the bay area here is because I believe in the power of family. What I believe in life is to shared and this type of food , you don’t see much here in state. It’s only local people as a Thai culture especially family you know, sit down, enjoy the food and have fun using your hands. You don’t care who you are eating with, but you do care about is the conversation over the table. That is family
