Besides the variety and scope of the meal, there are the dishes themselves which will certainly bear no resemblance to anything most Americans are used to in terms of Thai food - there is no Pad Thai or spring rolls here, not by a longshot. Instead think choices like “mo hor,” minced prawns and chicken simmered in palm sugar with deep fried shallots garlic and peanuts. Or “yam kamin orn,” a salad of white turmeric with prawns, pork and chicken. Or “geng sap nok gradtaa” a red curry featuring quail, ginger, green beans and Thai basil. How’s this for a combination you probably would not have thought of trying at home: mackerel and green mango braised in shrimp paste simmered in coconut cream, with Thai basil. [Thai Food] Pandan Leaf Chicken Sauce (Nam Jim Gai Hor Bai Toey)
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.

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

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.

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.

London has had decent Thai restaurants for decades, with menus dominated by Thailand's national dish, Phad Thai and green or red curry. These dishes are great but recently there's been an explosion of Thai street food and more unusual options available across the city, in posh restaurants, cafes and hipster joints. With Bangkok frequently topping lists of the best street food cities in the world, Londoners are fortunate to have such an excellent range of places to enjoy one of the world's favorite cuisines. Here are five of the best. The Great Gildersleeve: Community Chest Football / Bullard for Mayor / Weight Problems
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 your idea of comfort food is stir-fried pork with eggplant, shrimp, chili, and more pork, then, yes - Senn Thai is comfort food. Stop here if you want surprisingly adventurous Thai on the Upper West Side. We wouldn’t say it’s comparable to the stuff you find in Queens, but we’ve been over this: you’re in Manhattan, make lemonade.

Follow Ryan Gosling’s footsteps to Jitlada, where the actor is a regular. Indeed, this family-run southern Thai temple has won over much of L.A., luring diners to a mini-mall in the Thai Town neighborhood, an unassuming location offset by the nuclear dishes you’d be hard-pressed to find outside Hat Yai. Expect a wait—with only three stoves and 50 seats, there’s almost always a line, though that doesn’t stop chef Tui Sungkamee’s menu from spanning some 300 dishes, including coconut mango salad, a curative tom yum soup (a lemongrass-laced broth with chiles and Kaffir lime), fiery Phangga jungle curry, and eel with stinky beans. He spends hours at local farmers’ markets personally selecting the night’s ingredients, while his sister Jazz—Jitlada’s infectious co-owner and host—grows herbs like galangal and turmeric in her home garden. If you’re lucky, Jazz will be persuaded to make her off-menu Thai burger. อาหารไทย - Thai Food Near Me by Chumnan
Hi! I just tried this but made a couple tweaks, just because I didn’t have all the ingredients. I was looking for a good base recipe and this is it! Thanks! 🙂 (My tweaks were really just using a bit of peanut butter to make the sauce creamy and have more body–since I didn’t have fish sauce, using spinach instead of zucchini, omitting the egg, and using sriracha! Oh, and squeezing a little lime juice into the sauce, too!) GMM Music Video [EN]
Kai jeow is the unsung hero of Thailand. Every Thai kid has grown up on this wok fried omelette, which can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients. The two fillings I love most are the moo sab -- garlicky, peppery ground pork -- or nam -- a sour, fermented Thai sausage. The trick to getting a perfect kai jeow is cook over very high heat, resulting in a crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside egg dish. You’ll never be able to go back to regular omelettes after this. Thai Fishcakes competition - Gordon Ramsay

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 The Lounge Bar


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.

Probably due to the fact it sounds like an all-girl group from Calabasas with a noon start time at Coachella, Summer Buffalo doesn’t really get the credit it deserves. But make no doubt about it, this place is great. And with locations in Burbank and on Melrose, it serves two areas largely in need of some quality Thai food. The feel inside is modern, and you could even pull off a casual date here. Must-orders include the salmon curry noodle, isaan sausage, and their pad kee mau. Also, there’s free delivery.

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.

This spice-forward curry from Southern Thailand is one of the country's most famous dishes, and a great break from the green curry routine. "It's a Southern-style curry," explains Alex McCoy of D.C.'s Alfie's restaurant." Its influenced by Arabic cooking in that the spices—green and black cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, and nutmeg—are deeply toasted in the pan before being cooked down with garlic and shallots. "It has a wonderful roasted flavor," he says, adding that it has raisiny-tart notes thanks to tamarind, palm sugar, and fish sauce. A flourish of chopped peanuts adds crunch. Still on the fence? Take it from McCoy: "If you like beef stew, you'd love Massaman curry."

Crying Tiger is a tiny take-out window a few feet off of Hollywood Blvd. and, at first glance, seems like another decent drunk food option for everyone stumbling out of the bars. But Crying Tiger is much, much more. First off, it’s operated by the Luv2Eat people, so expect flavors and spice to be intense. Secondly, their menu goes far beyond a solid bowl of pad thai. Think spinach-based jade noodles, shu mai dumplings, and crispy chicken skin. If you feel like sitting down, hop inside the bar next door at Black Magic Rose where the full Crying Tiger menu is also available. Wander's First Year


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.
This East Dallas legend, more than 20 years old, is one of Dallas’ best options for reliably great Thai food. Definitely order the satay, which is grilled to perfection at the table, and a piping hot bowl of tom kha gai, extra spicy. Pad see ew, pad thai, and Thai barbecue chicken are all excellent entree choices, and don’t sleep on the sticky rice & mango dessert. YumYum Cocktail Competition

Tried Panang curry and stir fried Mango Paradise. Definitely get the mango dish, very good. Properly cooked vegetables were crisp and flavoursome, sauce amazing. The Panang curry is more coconut milky spicy curry sauce than anything else, so be prepared to eat a lot of rice with that one. I liked it, just know what you are in for with the curry option.

The owner came out and proceeded to chew me out for not saying anything about the burnt food. I explained that it wasn't really the issue, that the issue was the hair on my plate.

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. Simply Thai, Teddington - Gordon Ramsay
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

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. Pad Thai & Satay Chicken - Thai Street Food in Stables Market, Camden, London.
"The first time I had larb in Thailand was insane," says Cohen, explaining why she loves this simple dish so much. It's comprised of ground meat (duck is Cohen's favorite, but you'll also frequently see pork, chicken, or beef) that's been cooked in water and mashed up with a spoon and lime juice, shallot, cilantro, fish sauce, and tons of chiles. It's seriously spicy and aggressively seasoned—which is why it comes with a side of raw veggies, like cabbage, carrots, and lettuce. "The raw veg cuts through the heat level and acts as a palate cleanser." Unlike sautéed ground meat, larb doesn't become caramelized, but what it lacks in crispy bits, it more than makes up for in flavor.
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.

The choices here include bowls of kee mao (rice noodles spiked with basil, cherry tomatoes, and chili sauce); preserved duck egg curry; and shredded papaya salad with crab, made Thai style (sweet and sour with peanuts, dried shrimp, and cherry tomatoes) or Laos style (meaning with galvanic bursts of southern Thai fish sauce). Most dishes ring in under $8, making Asia Market’s homespun setting all the more satisfying.

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.

"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."

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.

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. Greyhound Cafe brings Bangkok to London with traditional recipes handed down from generations past, to riotous dishes from street markets, to improvised contemporary plates.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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. Best Thai Restaurant: Nahm Jim - Gordon Ramsay
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. Once you’ve tried them all, please vote for the one that really thrilled your taste buds... Pad Thai Noodles with King Prawns Tasted in London. Street Food Dish. Patara Thai Restaurant
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. Walking London's ISLINGTON - Chapel Market, Islington High Street, Upper Street & Holloway Road - UK

From Cape Town to Khao San Road, the default international Thai dish! Dropped in a searing hot wok, fistfuls of small, thin or wide noodles (you choose) do a steamy minute-long dance alongside crunchy beansprouts, onion and egg, before disembarking for the nearest plate. A truly interactive eating experience, half its fun (and flavour) lies in then using a quartet of accompanying condiments - fish sauce, sugar, chilli powder and finely ground peanuts - to wake it from its slumbers.
