Great Thai in Portland, OR: E-San
Just spent a weekend down in Portland and stumbled onto excellent Thai! E-San Thai downtown. We were desperate for Thai for lunch on Saturday only to find Typhoon! was closed up tight. Argh. By chance we drove past a homey looking place that had a window full of people despite being out of the shopping district on a Sat. Dare we? We do! Lovely individual baskets of sticky rice, wide rice noodles with excellent texture and some curries that made us weep (with joy and spice) made this a lunch to remember. Add some friendly (albeit a bit slow - only one server for the whole restaurant) service and a cozy decor and you've got a winner.
