  1. I highly recommend Thai Nakorn! Below is a link to an earlier discussion on it.

    We continue to be happy with this restaurant, and have been faithfully eating in and taking out every week for almost a year now. Prices are great, and the food is delicious! All entrees give a choice of beef, chicken, pork, seafood, tofu (delicious & great texture), or just plain veggies. Here are some of our favorites:

    *Panang Curry
    *Pad Gra Prow (sautéed with chili, onions, bell pepper, basil leaves)
    *Pad Khing Sod (sautéed fresh ginger, onions, bell pepper, mushroom)
    *Spicy Bamboo (bamboo shoots with chili paste, basil leaves)
    *Som Tum (salad - green papaya strips with tomatoes, green beans, roasted peanuts, spicy lemon sauce)

    Actually, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

    1. I assume we are talking about San Mateo Avenue in San Bruno? Almost next to the swim school is Ming's. They do a decent job with Chinese food and I noticed that many of the parents go there for take outs for dinner after swimming lessons. The chef does hand pulled noodles quite well since he used to work in the kitchen of San Wong(sp) Restaurant. (Japan Town and outer Richmond) If you decide to order this form of noodles, order it saute since I think it gets quite mushy in soup. Their dumplings are really good too. Enjoy.
