    Correction...Crying Tiger = thin sliced rib eye steak(or equivalent steak)

    oh yeah, Osha doesnt have it. I think alot of places dont have it.

        edit = Crying Tiger to me = Quickly seared RibEye steak (or similar) as a whole, then sliced somewhat thin after cooked and plated and slightly rare in the middle.

        I had King Of Thai noodle house and it was very disappointing. It was thinly sliced beef before cooked, then stir fried and plated; similar to a chinese dish. Pretty tough and bland. Ick!

        If I'm not mistaken, crying tiger is raw shrimp with spicy sauce? If it is the same, Thai House Express on Geary and Larkin serves it, but they call it "Naked ladies".

        The best place for Duck fried rice is Thai Cafe on Geary also. I forgot the cross street, sorry.

          I thought Crying Tiger was the Thai equivalent to Vietnamese Shaking beef, cubed filet mignon with onions.

            Woops, my bad then. But your best bets of places in SF that serve these are:

            Thai House Express
            Pad Thai (Mission)

            I love Chiang Mai! They have a very good version of tom kha gai, too.
