We had six or so meals among the four of us, including curry, Thai fried rice, stir fries, and we also had appetizers (egg rolls and pot stickers). We were so happy to eat such high quality food, and all four of us were delighted to find this restaurant in this small town we are visiting on our vacation. The owner/operator was working hard and cares a lot about making her business excellent - it shows! A little place, none too fancy. I would highly recommend the yellow curry and the Thai basil dinner (a fried rice mix). Would return!

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.

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.

You can’t go wrong with Thai noodle soups. They’re flavorful, customizable, and good to the last drop. Although boat noodles -- a pork and beef dish flavored with spices and fresh blood -- are typically the most popular of the noodle soup dishes in Thailand (and worth trying if you’ve yet to have it!), I’d also suggest slurping up a bowl of kuay tiew phet, or duck noodle soup. The broth gets its warm flavor from a blend of cinnamon, star anise, and five spice and delights when the duck has the perfect ratio of meat to fat. I prefer my bowl to contain flat, large rice noodles but the best part about Thai noodle soups is that you can choose your favorite style whether you like vermicelli, egg noodles, or glass noodles.

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.

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. Joe's Kitchen King of Thrift

As one of the most popular and talked about restaurants in London, it’s no surprise that Kiln in Soho won the UK's Best Restaurant title in the 2018 National Restaurant Awards. And the title is well deserved. Founded by Ben Chapman and Brian Hannon in 2016, they’ve got everything just right from the seemingly effortless chic and hip decor to their phenomenal Thai menu. Kiln offers simple, satisfying dishes that combine Burmese, Yunanese and Laos spicing and flavors. Head chef Nick Molyviatis's food is cooked over open flames with a nod to the road style cooking of rural Thailand. Some of the dishes are very spicy but the chefs are able to tone them down on request. The emphasis is on fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Grower Sean O’Neil supplies Thai and Chinese herbs and vegetables while pigs are bred for Kiln by Phillip Warren Farmers. Dayboat seafood is delivered fresh each morning. Crouch end -London
Shirataki noodles, composed mostly of water and konjac yam (a water-soluble dietary fiber), are a popular ingredient in Japanese cuisine. They also go by other names: konjac noodles (from the plant they originate), miracle noodles (because of the most popular brand) or konnyaku noodles. What has them trending, however, is that they’re effectively zero calories and carbs.
For Angelenos, Thai Town invokes images of trips to the ATMs, late night post-bar drunk munchies, and levels of spiciness that transcend the normal threshold considered healthy for human consumption. Thai food has been a mainstay in LA food culture for quite some time. Here now, the essential Thai restaurants of Los Angeles, in no particular order.

In the U.S. now, there are reportedly over 5,000 Thai restaurants to choose from, with regional specialty spots popping up left and right. Chefs from every corner of Thailand are venturing stateside and offering up their best, abandoning Americanized pad see ews and yet another dish of massaman curry. As Thomas Fuller wrote in the New York Times, “A number of restaurants here serve dishes that respect the complexity of Thai food and its balance of sweet, sour, salt, and spice. They’re part of a sea [of] change that in recent years has produced ambitious and acclaimed Thai restaurants around the country.”

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.

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 Caribbean Restaurant - Gordon Ramsay
