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 Yum Yum
When noodles are soft enough (but still slightly harder than al dente pasta), rinse them in cold water and drain. Make sure all of your ingredients are set up and divided into equal portions. Note: You’re cooking one portion at a time. Add 2 tbsp. oil to a wok or large non-stick pan. Heat on medium-high, until very hot. Add chicken (if using) and cook for 1 min, then add tofu and garlic. Cook for about 45 secs, stirring frequently. Garlic should now be brown. Stir in noodles, then add 3 tbsp. of sauce mixture. Coat noodles and meat well and stir vigorously to keep noodles from sticking. After about 2 mins, taste noodles to check if they’re soft enough. If not, add 2-3 tbsp. of water and continue to cook for a little longer. The MOST INSANE Street Food in Thailand!
Shrimp, fish sauce, tamarind, eggs, rice noodles, tofu, and bean sprouts are all common in pad thai. We simplified our version. Since we rarely need (or can find) tamarind, we skipped it in the sauce. To make up for it's sourness, we added lime juice. Also in the sauce: brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and a little bit of cayenne pepper. Fish sauce smells pretty funky, but we promise you it's necessary. 
When May Chaleoy came to America in 1997, she planned to learn English and then return to her native Bangkok. Instead, she opened Washington’s best Thai restaurant, a tamarind-scented oasis on Vashon Island (a 15-minute ferry ride from Seattle, where her former eponymous restaurant was located). Inside you’ll find 60 seats surrounded by carved teak and mahogany panels and lotus-petal light fixtures imported from Thailand. Still, it’s the food that commands your attention: central Thai classics like green curry (made from scratch with green chiles, Thai eggplant, coconut cream, and shipped-from-the-motherland Kaffir lime skin) and moo satay (yellow curry grilled pork skewers). But the pad thai is perhaps most memorable (and certainly most authentic): servers deliver banana leaf–wrapped parcels of noodles bathed in house-made tamarind sauce, mixed tableside with chiles, Chinese chives, bean sprouts, and bitter banana flowers.

The Halkin opened 20 years ago as London’s first design-driven boutique hotel and is part of Como Hotels & Resorts, a Singapore-based luxury group that also operates London’s nearby Metropolitan, the Metropolitan in Bangkok (where the other Nahm is), resorts in Bhutan, Bali, the Maldives, and the celebrity-laden, yoga-centric Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos Islands.
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. Pandan Leaf
This downtown Minneapolis skyway lunch gem is by the daughter and son-in-law of On’s (see below). Because it’s a skyway spot it’s only open from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. weekdays, and because it’s a skyway spot they have a so-so lunch buffet that you should skip. Instead, call ahead and order a laab, a red curry, or a Tom Yum soup from the regular menu. Isn’t it amazing?! A serious power move is leaving work early and taking some curry to go for a Friday night couch feast. 811 Lasalle Ave. #207, Mpls., 612-332-0260, padgapow.com
What is it that makes Ruen Pair so great? Many of its dishes aren’t one-of-a-kind standouts, and most Thai expats wouldn’t exactly call it the most authentic Thai experience they’ve ever encountered (provided, the restaurants that fit the bill in that department vastly vary). Perhaps, then, it’s the fact that their turnip omelette marries just the right hint of sweetness with savory in a way that makes it required ordering, or how the fragrant star anise and cinnamon-powered steam from a bowl of boat noodles naturally elicits a Pavlovian response.

This Rainbow Vegetarian Pad Thai (with peanuts and basil dohhh) is just really good, my friends. It is really good and surprisingly easy. I took a few ideas I had seen out there in the big wide internet world (vegetables as noodles! Pad Thai sauce-ery!) and made them into this. And I am so happy with how it turned out + the minuscule amount of effort it takes to get there.

With an elegant yet inviting atmosphere, Buddha Ruksa has been a popular destination for dining in West Seattle for a good ten years. "Bags of Gold" are a great way to start; these fried dumplings of sorts are filled with shrimp, chicken, shiitake mushrooms, and water chestnuts. Other menu highlights include crispy garlic chicken and crispy duck, available six different ways. You don't do Pad Thai in this Thai restaurant (Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown)

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.

Tod mun pla is the quintessential Thai appetizer that should be on every table. Essentially a Thai fish cake, the dish is made from fish paste and long beans, and flavored with red curry paste and kaffir lime leaves. The lime leaves give the dish a citrusy and aromatic fragrance. Tod mun pla is usually served with a sweet and refreshing dipping sauce, or nam jim, which contains chopped cucumbers, chilis, shallots, and peanuts submerged in a syrup of sugar, fish sauce, and vinegar. The result is a sweet-and-savory starter that can easily be transformed into a meal over a plate of white rice.

In fact the only thing I’ve had that’s come close were the Australian eateries of legendary chef David Thompson, widely regarded as the world’s foremost non-Thai expert on Thai cuisine, whose Darley Street Thai and Sailor’s Thai in Sydney were both excellent. Now closed, Darley Street Thai was named “Best Thai” in Australia (which has a huge number of quality Thai restaurants) for all eight years of its existence.

LA has a number of vegan Thai restaurants, and for the most part, they’re terrible. Save for Araya’s Place. The Beverly Grove strip mall joint started in Seattle, and has been around for almost 30 years. And while we’ll always prefer our curry with meat, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t think about their avocado curry more than we probably should. The green curry itself is outstanding, but the avocado mixes so well with it, you wonder why more people don’t serve it. If you’re a vegan, you can’t get much better than this place. And if you’re not, the statement still stands. The Begging Bowl Thai Restaurant in Peckham London serving Delicious Food, Wine and Cocktails
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. Yum Yum
Virtually everyone on Vashon island, grateful to have good Asian food without having to jump on a ferry to Seattle, raves about May Kitchen and Bar. This is more than a case of loving the one you're with, though; the food is so good that hungry Seattleites should consider boarding the boat to Vashon. Highlights include May’s terrific pad thai, finished tableside, and yum pla (whole) trout with mango salad.
The stiff competition of the local tom yum wars makes it exceedingly difficult for any restaurant to stand out here, and in other New York neighborhoods Ploy would be a blessing. It’s spare but nice, if oddly decorated (see alternating succulents and lightbulbs), and some waitresses might take to, say, playing through the entirety of Britney. The restaurant is most notable for its noodles, stir-fried and otherwise, like rad nar, served in a bowl with Chinese broccoli and a generous helping of thick, sweet gravy speckled with fermented soy beans, the whole lot of which would be right at home at a neo-diner. The stir-fried rice noodles in the guay tiew kua gai are satisfyingly chewy and served well by the crispy egg, chicken, squid, and — an essential addition — sriracha hot sauce. Most famous are the pan-fried pad kee mao, which here taste pure and smoky. Always, though, supplement your noodles with a few appetizers, like the bracing miang kana, broccoli leaves served with shredded pork and a mix of diced chiles, ginger, rind-on lime, and more.

Amidst all the chaos of Grand Central Market, you might miss Sticky Rice at first. But inside this food stall in the center of the market is a fantastic secret. And that secret is the best beef panang curry in the city. The rest of the menu is pretty great too, but something in that curry speaks to us unlike anything else. It’s sweet, savory, and a little spicy, and the braised beef is so tender that chewing is optional. Thai Best Song From 2000-2009
With its year-round warm weather, Thai cuisine is home to some of the most serious ‘cue in the world, and Spicy BBQ’s barbecued pork is a great example, with a fragrant marinade of turmeric and lime juice marrying those nice caramelized bits on the edge to create a savory profile reminiscent of Korean BBQ. The pork patties and khao soi are also worth ordering at this Northern Thai specialist. Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant
A great local beer list and Supatra Johnson, the friendliest Thai chef in Minnesota, make Supatra one of those restaurants you go to twice and immediately consider part of your family.

In a wok or large stockpot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry 15 seconds. Add the shrimp and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or just until pink and opaque.

Fold in the softened noodles, fish sauce, vinegar, 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, and paprika and toss for about 2 minutes or until well combined. Add the scallions and bean sprouts and heat through.

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. Branches in Capitol Hill and Redmond save aficionados the travel to Tukwila for gai hor bai toey (pandan-wrapped chicken) or noteworthy seafood dishes like hor mok (salmon and red curry steamed in a banana leaf).

The quintessential Thai aroma! A bold, refreshing blend of fragrant lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime leaves, shallots, lime juice and fish sauce shapes this classic soup, giving it its legendary herbal kick. Succulent fresh prawns and straw mushrooms lend it body. A versatile dish that can fit within virtually any meal, the distinctive smell reminds you of exotic perfume, while it's invigorating sour-spicy-hot taste just screams 'Thailand'!

Lately, we’ve been telling a lot of people to get Uncle Boons in their rotation. It’s in a little space on Spring Street, and it’s the rare spot that exceeds the expectations of its trendy hype. Get the massaman curry with boneless beef ribs and the golden curry with a chicken leg. Also, try something from the charcoal grill (there’s a whole menu). The food packs serious depth and flavor, and it’s a guaranteed spot to impress out-of-town friends. And If you want to finish strong, don’t sleep on the coconut sundae. The restaurant so good they named it twice! Yum Yum Restaurant by George
Thai Patio does not have the best food on this list. However, it has something that almost nobody else does - an atmosphere that’s essentially the afterparty from the one you just came from. Roll into Thai Patio at 3am on a Saturday night, and you’ll be greeted with 100 other late-night revelers. The order at Thai Patio is always noodles - their drunken noodles (coincidence?) are among our favorite in town. Then sit back, soak up that tequila, and listen to the teenage girl on stage singing an acoustic version of “Man, I Feel Like A Woman”.
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. พาชมร้าน NANG THAI RESTAURANT, LONDON
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.

Another Queens pioneer, Chao Thai is toward the literal end of “hole-in-the-wall” when it comes to atmosphere, but the food has seriously held its own for years now, and the chef-owner, Ratchanee Sumpatboon, has made her mark by expanding all over the city (see Lan Larb Soho and Zabb Elee, below), scattering spicy specialties from her native Isan in her wake.

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.
"Everyone in Thailand eats this once a week," says chef Jet Tila of this spicy basil stir-fry.This dish is made by sautéing chiles and garlic in a hot wok, then adding ground meat along with peppers, onions, fish sauce, and palm sugar—all hit with a big handful of sweet or Thai basil. "The dish has been adapted regionally," explains Tila, so you'll sometimes see it with mint instead of basil. "Order it by saying 'Kra Pow,' and then the protein of your choice," says Tila—"but you have to eat it with a hard-fried runny egg on top, and over jasmine rice."

Thailand’s food needs little introduction. From San Francisco to Sukhothai, its profusion of exotic flavours and fragrances make it among the most coveted of international cuisines.

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.

Lan Larb is a no frills Thai spot on a random no-man’s-land block below Nolita that stands out because it’s so normal. Every other restaurant in the area spent half their original budget on custom matchbooks and artisanal neon signs, but Lan Larb is fine doing its own thing. If you’re looking for delivery, they’ll bring some very good curry or noodles to your office or home. The restaurant isn’t good for any kind of occasion that calls for ambiance, but, if you just need good food, stop in and try some of their Isan regional specialties, like larb (ground meat salad) or Thai sausage.

Executive Chef Junnajet “Jett" Hurapan, owner of Songkran Thai Kitchen and a native of Bangkok, Thailand, values the robust, fresh flavors of traditional Thai cuisine, and delivers extraordinary tastes and textures, whether savory or sweet, in all the dishes he creates. He uses fresh ingredients: garlic, shrimp paste, Thai chilies, lemongrass, galangal, coconut, rhizome, and melds them together to create a sophisticated, subtle elegance in which every element is in perfect balance. He also prepares and grinds fresh spices to enhance the clean, light, burst of zest to the Thai food. His distinct cooking has been passed down from generation after generation, from both his grandmother and father, Chef Taweewat Hurapan. Chef Jett has won the “Best of the Best Chef Award from Excellent Culinary, now a part of the American Culinary Institute. Breakfast time at Yum Yum Restaurant

I made this recipe tonight. It had a great taste. I added 1/8 cup of peanut butter for a slightly more peanut buttery taste. Overall, this was spot on regarding taste. It had a great taste, but a few tips for others that may not be as avid chefs (like me). I am not necessarily the best cook, so this reminder is worth it. DO NOT OVERCOOK! The rice noodles are easy to become mush (I have not cooked with them before and the ones I had really should only have been cooked 1 minute and sat 3 for a firmer noodle – they ended up as mush for me because I waited 5 1/2 minutes). I added snow peas and baby corn, but I overcooked those too (yikes – I am such a rookie) because I wanted to cook the sauce items and had already added all the ingredients when I started adding the sauce ingredients. I feel like the sauce items should be mixed together first and heated before adding the noodles, shrimp and tofu, so it cooks properly / blends/heats, but maybe that is just because I wasn’t using a real wok (I don’t have one, so I used a large sauté pan. Overall the flavors were excellent, just would have changed my technique / sequence a bit. It moves pretty quickly once you start cooking so be prepared. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely get it down next time.

Having a great bowl of khao soi is a life changing experience. The best khao soi I’ve ever had was in Northern Thailand where the dish is considered a regional specialty. What makes this noodle soup so special is the balance of creamy coconut broth with sharp, pickled mustard greens, raw shallots, and crispy egg noodles. Squeeze fresh lime over the entire thing and you have a comforting bowl of different textures and flavors -- what Thai food is all about. Yum Yum Sab - Thai Restaurant

I live in Ellensburg but have been there several times. A friend lives in Cle Elum. I love the food but the service is not always the greatest. I think she hires people without much experience in food service. Sometimes the service is good, other times not so great. I owned a restaurant years ago. There are times when I wanted to get up and just help with serving the tables. I don't think I have ever seen more than one person serving. We have always gone for lunch so it may be different at dinner. Will continue to go back for the food and friendliness. Lovin Stoke Newington

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. Don’t leave without knocking back a Singha slushy—they sell 600 a week. AMAZING THAI FOOD IN LONDON - Thai Silk Restaurant
If you’re passing through Midtown and you’re craving some larb, swerve to the east fifties and every other storefront will be a Thai restaurant. It can get a little overwhelming, but Wondee Siam is always a good choice. It’s nothing fancy, but if you want good penang curry or some pineapple fried rice that you’ll want to mash up and make a night retainer out of, hit up Wondee. The whole fried snapper should be ordered as well (because it’s $22 and it’ll get you through the winter). Thai Fishcakes competition - Gordon Ramsay

The name means "drunken noodle." It's a dish Thai street vendors sell to tipsy party-goers, and it's also Leah Cohen of NYC's Pig and Khao's pick for a satisfying late night meal. Like Laad Naa, this dish is made with wide rice noodles. "They're similar to Chow Fun noodles," explains Cohen: "Spicy, sweet, and salty, with Chinese broccoli, eggs, onion, meat, chiles, garlic, soy, fish sauce… a little oyster sauce." In other words: A little bit of everything. This dish is saucy and sticky and indulgent, which makes it ideal for both sopping up too much booze and for random Tuesday nights after a long day of work.

Add shrimp (if using) and combine with noodles. Push everything aside creating an empty space in the middle. Crack an egg, wait 15 secs to set, then mix into the noodles. Sprinkle some white pepper, add bean sprouts and up to 1 tbsp. more sauce. Stir everything for 1 min, then add scallions. Turn off heat and toss. To serve, top with crushed peanuts, dried onions and a generous squeeze of lime juice.
A mild, tamer twist on Tom Yum, this iconic soup infuses fiery chilies, thinly sliced young galangal, crushed shallots, stalks of lemongrass and tender strips of chicken. However unlike its more watery cousin, lashings of coconut milk soften its spicy blow. Topped off with fresh lime leaves, it's a sweet-smelling concoction, both creamy and compelling.

Step 5 above is a duplicate of Step 4. Step 5 should read: Spread remaining 1/4C butter on top & bottom of sandwiches & sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Heat large skillet over medium-high. Place sandwiches in a single layer & cook until browned, about 4 min. per side. Transfer to a cutting board & cut each sandwich into 4 pieces. Please correct.
This downtown Minneapolis skyway lunch gem is by the daughter and son-in-law of On’s (see below). Because it’s a skyway spot it’s only open from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. weekdays, and because it’s a skyway spot they have a so-so lunch buffet that you should skip. Instead, call ahead and order a laab, a red curry, or a Tom Yum soup from the regular menu. Isn’t it amazing?! A serious power move is leaving work early and taking some curry to go for a Friday night couch feast. 811 Lasalle Ave. #207, Mpls., 612-332-0260, padgapow.com Fight Science Kick Test (Capoeira, Karate, Muaythai & Taekwondo)
One of the traditional takeout things about chicken stir fries is how they have chicken that looks like it was almost shaved, similar to Mongolian Beef in restaurants. The trick to this is to freeze the chicken for about one hour. Once you do you can very easily slice the chicken very thinly against the grain. Since the slices are so thin you’ll find that even though it was in the freezer, it will come back to a good cooking temperature very quickly.

Hailing from the Northeast state of Isaan, this outlandish dish is both great divider - some can't get enough of its bite, some can't handle it - and greatly distinctive. Garlic, chilies, green beans, cherry tomatoes and shredded raw papaya get dramatically pulverized in a pestle and mortar, so releasing a rounded sweet-sour-spicy flavour that's not easily forgotten. Regional variations throw peanuts, dry shrimp or salted crab into the mix, the latter having a gut-cleansing talent that catches many newcomers by surprise!

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’ve been really taking it easy lately in the kitchen. When I say take it easy, I don’t mean making ten minute basil artichoke toasts and five minute magic green sauce. I mean taking it easy as in NOT COOKING ANYTHING. We’re talking life-saving dinner made by friends, hot dogs (gulp), mac and cheese, and chicken nuggets out of the freezer. During these last few weeks, my old self has definitely been food-snob-judging my current self. If nothing else, this experience has shown me that my ideals for cooking and feeding kids have some work to do in terms of aligning themselves with reality. Yum-Yum
Here is Eater’s guide to Austin’s top Thai restaurant destinations. From household staples like Titaya’s Thai Cuisine and Thai Fresh to casual eateries like Madam Mam’s and Sap’s, the city’s steadfast Thai food trucks like Dee Dee and newcomer Soursop, and a whole bunch of punny names. While some spots stick to traditional Thai cuisines, others add a bit of Texas heat.

Thai Patio does not have the best food on this list. However, it has something that almost nobody else does - an atmosphere that’s essentially the afterparty from the one you just came from. Roll into Thai Patio at 3am on a Saturday night, and you’ll be greeted with 100 other late-night revelers. The order at Thai Patio is always noodles - their drunken noodles (coincidence?) are among our favorite in town. Then sit back, soak up that tequila, and listen to the teenage girl on stage singing an acoustic version of “Man, I Feel Like A Woman”.

Is there a better bowl of Thai soup noodles in Los Angeles than Rodded’s duck noodle soup? Tender slices of boneless, skin-on duck, a clean-yet-rich broth with just the right undertones of spice and firm egg noodles combine to make it a legitimate question. And Rodded isn’t a one-trick pony in the soup noodle department: Their beef noodle soup, with an equally refreshing broth is an in-house competitor that rivals the balance of savory, rich and spice in its gamier competitor.

Don't let the exterior fool you or think that Cle Elum can't offer excellent Thai food. Jenny the owner greeted me and enthusiastically customized my dinner to perfection. Everything is homemade and freshly prepared. Loved the perfect mix of grilled vegetables and grilled chicken with their sauce. Flavors of the grill are present as well. So delicious with large portions for very reasonable prices!
Lol! So happy to hear you’re enjoying the recipes Donna! Peanuts aren’t paleo because they’re a legume, but they’re lower in carbs than almonds so technically keto? There are different thoughts on this, I say go with what your own body says (for instance, they work great for me but cause immediate inflammation for my mom who has arthritis). Hope this helped xo!

This dish literally translates to “red light stir fried morning glory.” The red light refers to the flames that leap up while cooking this dish on a wok, as well as the red Thai chilis that freckle the dish. Morning glory is a relatively neutral tasting veggie, so this dish dresses it up in a fermented soy bean, oyster sauce, and soy sauce gravy. Eat this with a bowl of rice porridge for a filling Thai breakfast.

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.


The food at Up Thai isn’t the on the level of the stuff you want to travel for, but on the Upper East Side, it gets no better. Delivery is tempting, but many of the best things won’t travel well (and the dining room isn’t a bad place to spend some time). So DVR that episode of The Bachelorette and get yourself a table. Order the chicken larb, the whole red snapper, and the crispy duck with tamarind sauce. If you’re really into seafood, get a Thai bouillabaisse, which is a thing here.

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.

**Fish sauce is available in the Asian food section of most grocery stores or you can purchase it online. They also make a VEGAN version as well as a gluten free version. I HIGHLY recommend using any one of these, as it adds important saltiness and irreplaceable Thai flavor to the dish. If you must make a substitution, use additional low-sodium soy sauce.

With an elegant yet inviting atmosphere, Buddha Ruksa has been a popular destination for dining in West Seattle for a good ten years. "Bags of Gold" are a great way to start; these fried dumplings of sorts are filled with shrimp, chicken, shiitake mushrooms, and water chestnuts. Other menu highlights include crispy garlic chicken and crispy duck, available six different ways.
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. Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant
In terms of the menu itself, Night + Market’s Silver Lake location is nearly identical to the original, meaning the food is still among the best you’ll find in LA. We’ve only ranked it a few notches below the original because, as a whole, the atmosphere is bit more chaotic and cramped than the West Hollywood location, they don’t serve beer towers, and there’s no outdoor patio for you and your big group of friends. But as soon as those wings, the khao soi, and every other dish starts hitting the table, you tend to forget about those very small shortcomings.

Best Thai Restaurant: Nahm Jim - Gordon Ramsay
I love pad thai and it is such a hassle to have to dine out every time I get a craving and let’s face it, the meal kits from the grocery store are not good. I decided to learn to make it and chose this recipe based on the “amazing” and “easy” comments, and it did not disappoint! So good and if you have any leftover, it’s even better the next day! I followed the recipe exactly using the rice vinegar version and included the peanut butter. YUMMY! Lemongrass Chicken Recipe Video by YumYum
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.

I made this recipe sans the lentils portion (we wanted to use up other veggies in the fridge) and thought it was very tasty! I followed the meatball portion of the recipe to a T, but I left the mixture in the fridge for a full 2 days because I didn't have time to cook up the meatballs. My husband said these are the best turkey meatballs he has ever eaten. We weren't blown away by the yogurt sauce...after trying it, we added some sauteed garlic and shallots for some additional flavor. Overall, a solid recipe and I'd recommend giving it a try.

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.

Catch the waiter’s attention and ask “Can we have the bill, please?” or “Check, please.” to see how much you need to pay. The waiter might ask if you want to pay separately or as a group. Check the bill to see if a service charge or tip has been added. This is money that is given to the waiting staff for good service. If this hasn’t been added, it’s common in most English speaking countries to leave some extra money (usually 10-15% of the bill) for the waiter. Liam Gradidge At The YumYum Restaurant
As demand for online ordering grows among restaurant consumers, so has the need for independent restaurants to find solutions that let customers browse their menus, select options and pay for their carryout or delivery orders online. There are several restaurant ordering systems available that essentially let you input your menu information to create a simple ordering platform you can include on your own website or mobile app. Here are some of the top restaurant ordering system options to consider. 18 Action Movies You Need To See At Least Once In Your Lifetime
You might not have ever seriously considered which red wine you should be having with your bowl of green curry before, but Same Same is here to change that. Located in a dark Silver Lake strip mall, Same Same took the place of a well-run neighborhood Thai restaurant and converted it into a casual wine bar. Except one thing - they kept the old Thai menu and made it even better than it was before. Good wine, great food, and a welcoming atmosphere you never really want to leave?

Thai cuisine has a character all its own. It is easily distinguishable from Chinese and other Asian cuisines. Thai cooking balances sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and spicy in its own unique way. This recipe book will help you prepare your favorite recipes, in your home. Most are easy to make without losing that takeout feel. Cooking at home may take more work than ordering out, but it’s always healthier and more fun.


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.
