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.

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. WOW Simply Japanese a Restaurants in London serving Japanese Food
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!!!
Considering Ayada’s location in the heart of the Queens Thai community, near a Thai Buddhist temple, it’s not surprising the restaurant is known for its take-no-prisoners spice level. Phichit-born chef-owner Duangjai Thammasat (nicknamed Kitty) never sugarcoats her food; rather, her menu showcases Thailand in all its sinus-clearing glory, with an emphasis on southern curries spiked with sour tamarind and hot chiles. Don’t leave without trying the soupy kaeng som curry soured with tamarind paste or the beef tendon soup—you’ll want to order it dark, meaning laced with pig’s blood, a prized ingredient in southern Thailand.

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.

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.” LOVE SICK The Series - Ep1 [INDO/ENG Sub]
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
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.

Stopped here with friends after a Sunday hike. The first thing I noticed was the prices which seem a little on the high side for Cle Elum. No matter. We sit and order Tom Yum soup as a starter. Server warns us about the spice levels. We order our entrees. Food took a while to come out, and Tom Yum did not come as a starter, but instead with the entrees. Service was pleasant but erratic; we had to ask for place settings, and several times for more water. The Tom Yum was actually good, but a little too spicy. Unfortunately, our entrees were SO spicy that the flavor was completely overpowered! And the food was very greasy and slightly odd - too many onions in my 3* fried rice; strangely long carrot strips on my friend's 4* pad thai. I only ate about half of my fried rice; my friend ate one bite of her pad thai. My other friend finished his 2* mango chicken only out of sheer hiker hunger. We paid, left, and went across the street to Dairy Queen for chicken strips and a burger. As much as I wanted to like this place (and for there to be options in Cle Elum), we will not be back and I will not be recommending it to others. I don't think ordering zero stars would help. Oh - and we were discussing openly (not rudely, just matter of fact) how the food was unpleasantly spicy and the owner came out and glared at us, not cool.

This cozy spot in Woodside is charmingly down-to-earth and homey, thanks to the chef and owner Annie Phinphattakul, who presides over both the dining room and the kitchen and employs her teenage children as waitstaff. The food, then, is even more impressive for its sharp perfection — she may be smiling warmly but she is also cooking fiercely: a mix of traditional, mostly northern dishes and her own witty, playful concoctions. Sections of the menu are labeled “Food to Die For” and “Something So Special” and the dishes within them tend to earn these distinctions. The “egg sandwich” — which turns out to be richly sauced, sticky chunks of stir-fried pork, scattered across one shatteringly crispy fried egg and topped with another, plus basil — is the sort of thing you might think about wistfully until you get to eat it again.

This recipe for Pad Thai noodles with chicken and shrimp is authentic and simple enough for any aspiring Thai cook to make. The Pad Thai sauce is easier to create than the more-common tamarind-based variety. (In fact, the original Pad Thai didn't contain tamarind at all.) If you live in a place where Asian ingredients are difficult to find, then this tamarind-free recipe might be perfect for you.

What do they taste like? Shirataki noodles are actually taste-less and will take on the flavors of the dish. Texture-wise is where they vary, as they are more rubbery than your traditional noodles. And tbh, we’re not fans of using them outside the realms of Asian cuisine. But given that the rice noodles used in pad Thai are also on the chewy-side, shirataki noodles do work quite well here. And in our book, definitely worth a try. พาชมร้าน NANG THAI RESTAURANT, LONDON
I will admit that I am less expert in Thai cuisine than most of the other food styles I write about, but I have been to Thailand, and as the guest of the nation’s visitor board was taken by a gastronomically obsessed tourism official to a slate of his favorites to wow me with Thai cooking, and Nahm is better than anything I had in Bangkok, Phuket, Ko Samui, or any of the other places we visited. I’ve also eaten in this country’s most acclaimed Thai eateries, from New York to Las Vegas, and they can’t touch Nahm. FNUK fOX Intro
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.

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.
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). AMAZING THAI FOOD IN LONDON - Thai Silk Restaurant

In the world of restaurant names that don’t instill much confidence, Luv2Eat is a perennial powerhouse: this place has become an LA Thai staple. Located in the same Hollywood strip mall as that Pizza Hut you always go to by yourself and only tell your diary about, Luv2Eat’s menu covers a lot of ground and doesn’t really focus on any one region. You can come in and order pad thai, egg rolls, and Tom Yum soups and walk away thrilled. But your real best bet is to focus on the Phuket dishes, where spice levels are through the roof, but so is the flavor. The Phuket crab curry is a must.

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. Extreme Thai Street Food - CRAZY TOM YUM Late-Night Food Tour in Bangkok, Thailand!

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.

Greyhound Cafe in Fitzrovia has a loud, young clientele but the Bangkok street food more than makes up for the slightly hectic atmosphere. And there is a large outdoor patio to escape to when the London weather permits. Popular Phad Thai is on offer here too but with an interesting twist of seared scallops instead of prawns or chicken. A wok prepared rice dish with crab meat is pleasingly flavoured with garlic and chilli.

But I don’t need convincing because I’ve had Thompson’s cooking several times, and nowhere with as profound results as in London. The thing that makes Nahm a must-eat for me when visiting is not just the quality of the food, it is the singularity of the dinner experience. For almost anyone visiting for the first time, it will be completely unlike anything they have ever tried - anything. While you can order a la carte, the best option, and the one that makes Nahm so special, is the “Traditional Thai Meal,” in which guests receive a house appetizer and then choose one dish each from several categories: starter, soup, salad, relish, curry, and main which is a stir fried, braised or steamed dish. The full slate is served family-style for sharing. Since Nahm is a fine dining restaurant, all of this wondrous food is accompanied by first rate service, presentation and the option for sommelier-chosen wine pairings, a great choice given that relatively few visitors will have the expertise to select appropriate wines for such varied and intense flavors.

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. The Script - Superheroes (Official Video)

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.

Although today we associate Pad Thai sauce with tamarind, in this authentic southern-Thai recipe, the sourness comes instead from a combination of rice vinegar and lime juice. Several hundred years ago, traditional Pad Thai was made in just this way—without tamarind—and versions of this original recipe can still be found in various regions of Thailand.

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.

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.

Stopped here with friends after a Sunday hike. The first thing I noticed was the prices which seem a little on the high side for Cle Elum. No matter. We sit and order Tom Yum soup as a starter. Server warns us about the spice levels. We order our entrees. Food took a while to come out, and Tom Yum did not come as a starter, but instead with the entrees. Service was pleasant but erratic; we had to ask for place settings, and several times for more water. The Tom Yum was actually good, but a little too spicy. Unfortunately, our entrees were SO spicy that the flavor was completely overpowered! And the food was very greasy and slightly odd - too many onions in my 3* fried rice; strangely long carrot strips on my friend's 4* pad thai. I only ate about half of my fried rice; my friend ate one bite of her pad thai. My other friend finished his 2* mango chicken only out of sheer hiker hunger. We paid, left, and went across the street to Dairy Queen for chicken strips and a burger. As much as I wanted to like this place (and for there to be options in Cle Elum), we will not be back and I will not be recommending it to others. I don't think ordering zero stars would help. Oh - and we were discussing openly (not rudely, just matter of fact) how the food was unpleasantly spicy and the owner came out and glared at us, not cool.

I found this website looking for a pad thai recipe using konjac noodles. I made this recipe and it’s actually better than most pad thai I’ve eaten at thai restaurants. I added in some lemongrass and made mine with chicken, shrimp, and tofu. VERY good. I have since also tried another recipe from your blog – the super fudgey brownies and also my favorite brownie recipe! Thanks! Yum Yum Thai Restaurant
But I don’t need convincing because I’ve had Thompson’s cooking several times, and nowhere with as profound results as in London. The thing that makes Nahm a must-eat for me when visiting is not just the quality of the food, it is the singularity of the dinner experience. For almost anyone visiting for the first time, it will be completely unlike anything they have ever tried - anything. While you can order a la carte, the best option, and the one that makes Nahm so special, is the “Traditional Thai Meal,” in which guests receive a house appetizer and then choose one dish each from several categories: starter, soup, salad, relish, curry, and main which is a stir fried, braised or steamed dish. The full slate is served family-style for sharing. Since Nahm is a fine dining restaurant, all of this wondrous food is accompanied by first rate service, presentation and the option for sommelier-chosen wine pairings, a great choice given that relatively few visitors will have the expertise to select appropriate wines for such varied and intense flavors.

If there was such a thing as a 'Salad Hall of Fame', Thailand's zesty own breed, or 'yam' as they are known here, would surely take pride of place. Unconvinced? Experience the fresh, fiery thrill of yam nua - with its sprightly mix of onion, coriander, spearmint, lime, dried chili and tender strips of beef - and you won't be. It perfectly embodies the invigorating in-the-mouth-thrill of all Thai salads, the yummy-ness of yam.


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.

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.

In my opinion, the key to making great Pad Thai is to prep all your ingredients and lay them out nicely before beginning to cook, a.k.a. mis en place. Pad Thai is a quick stir-fry so you don’t want to measure out ingredients while you’re cooking. Another challenge for us was to find the perfect Thai ingredients, particularly tracking down the right tamarind concentrate. Most were either too sweet, too salty or not flavorful enough. We found one with 85% tamarind and only 15% water, nothing else in there. So try to find a similar concentration of tamarind without any extra additives. There are recipes and restaurants that use ketchup in place of tamarind, but I don’t wanna go there.

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.

What do they taste like? Shirataki noodles are actually taste-less and will take on the flavors of the dish. Texture-wise is where they vary, as they are more rubbery than your traditional noodles. And tbh, we’re not fans of using them outside the realms of Asian cuisine. But given that the rice noodles used in pad Thai are also on the chewy-side, shirataki noodles do work quite well here. And in our book, definitely worth a try.

We have the kids for a few more days this week before they go back to their family, and I honestly thought I wouldn’t see the inside of a kitchen for the rest of the time that they were with us, but somehow, during these last few days, I’ve army-crawled my way back into the kitchen to fight something delicious into existence which feels like a major personal and professional win. I even found it in me to eat this Rainbow Vegetarian Pad Thai for dinner the other night while feeding the kids some leftover pizza and apples. YES I KNOW.

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.
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. As a walk through Bangkok forcefully reminds, these flavours and fragrances are seemingly inexhaustible. However, whether it be juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or a fiery bowl of ‘Tom Yum’ soup, we all have to start somewhere. And what better place than our carefully selected Top 10 of Thai Food, which spans everything from staple backpacker favourites to Thai classics.

Thanks largely to the opening of Sripraphai (more on that below) some 20 years ago, Queens (and particularly the bordering Woodside and Elmhurst neighborhoods) has become the borough most associated with wonderful Thai restaurants, and in the current landscape Ayada takes the cake. The lengthy menu is full of absolute hits from all over the country: succulent frog’s legs, fried golden and draped in holy basil; salty minced pork, hiding rich quarters of black (preserved) eggs; a tantalizing tamarind-infused sour curry, bobbing with shrimp and fluffy cubes of omelette. One visit would be just scratching the surface of what’s on offer; returning many times could yield such a diversity of recipes and flavors that you might feel like you’d visited a different restaurant each time, were it not for the consistency of both the cooking and the atmosphere. The small dining room is polished and elegant without feeling too formal, the service exceptionally attentive and extremely pleasant. A meal at Ayada is an all-around slam dunk.

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.

This little International District shop keeps things simple indeed, opening only on weekdays and serving almost exclusively curry. Oh, there are noodles and a couple of other dishes, but diners should take inspiration from the name of the restaurant and go with one of the curries on offer. The only choice left to be made then is whether to add homemade hot sauce for more heat.
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.

Thai brunch anyone? Otus is actually the second iteration of a once-popular Thai spot called Kinaree that burned down a few years back. But don’t cry too many tears - Otus is much better. The space is modern, and while the food across the board is great, the breakfast/brunch situation is what really sets it apart. The Kai-Kata (Thai-style eggs and sweet sausage served in a skillet) is fantastic and comes with a cup of Thai coffee. Hangover bonus: Breakfast is served all day.

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. Hwijae's favorite Thai Restaurant in GUAM! [Battle Trip/2018.04.29]
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.

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. Yum Yum Sab - Thai Restaurant
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.

We tried a variety of dishes including lagoustines with lime and mint, cumin flavored lamb skewers, stir fried squid with garlic and chives and Burmese style ginger and beef cheek curry. A highlight was a dish with the curious combination of Tamworth pork belly and brown crab meat in clay pot baked glass noodles. Diners watch the chefs from their seats at the long counter that runs the length of the restaurant.

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'! Crouch End Snow
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.

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.
Made with morsels of meat, red curry paste, smooth coconut milk and topped off with a sprinkling of finely sliced kaffir lime leaves, this rich, aromatic curry always gets those taste buds tingling. At its best when the meat is stunningly tender, it could be likened to a beautiful woman: it's mild, sweet and delicately fragrant. And like all true love affairs, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Liam Gradidge At The YumYum Restaurant

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.

This cozy spot in Woodside is charmingly down-to-earth and homey, thanks to the chef and owner Annie Phinphattakul, who presides over both the dining room and the kitchen and employs her teenage children as waitstaff. The food, then, is even more impressive for its sharp perfection — she may be smiling warmly but she is also cooking fiercely: a mix of traditional, mostly northern dishes and her own witty, playful concoctions. Sections of the menu are labeled “Food to Die For” and “Something So Special” and the dishes within them tend to earn these distinctions. The “egg sandwich” — which turns out to be richly sauced, sticky chunks of stir-fried pork, scattered across one shatteringly crispy fried egg and topped with another, plus basil — is the sort of thing you might think about wistfully until you get to eat it again.

If only the word “cafeteria” more often described places like this one, where food is ordered by pointing to unlabeled sections of a steam table, à la rice-curry stalls and shops in Thailand. Combos feature two or three dishes plus rice. You never know what you’re going to get but you can be sure it will be delicious, from super-spicy curries to stewed pork belly with tofu.

Although today we associate Pad Thai sauce with tamarind, in this authentic southern-Thai recipe, the sourness comes instead from a combination of rice vinegar and lime juice. Several hundred years ago, traditional Pad Thai was made in just this way—without tamarind—and versions of this original recipe can still be found in various regions of Thailand.
