Kruang Tedd

I'v heard Kruang Tedd is very strong in the area of bar snacks, everything is just o.k. i take it. What are the good "bar snacks" to get?

    Oddly enough, someone named Kevin asked this same question on May 12, 2001. I'm not sure he got a direct answer, but if you do a search for the restaurant I think you'll find the kind of info you are looking for as well as details about the snacks at Palms Thai. Don't forget to support Chowhound now.

        When I was there Sunday night, I didn't check out bar snacks but the food was good and the waitstaff were quite fluent in English so I think you can run it by them.

          Every chowhound tip I've taken from this board has proved delicious. With one exception. Kruang Tedd. Maybe it was an off night, but I can't bring myself to go back. The service was very good, really nice waitress. And we ordered according to suggestions from this board and also from the waitress. But the food was way greasy and stale tasting. Both of us spent a long, indigestion filled night... And only the raves about Ruen Pair are making me forget the bad taste and start craving Thai again

            Sounds like it was an off night. Or perhaps Thai is not to your taste. And not to sound stupid, but sometimes when I really enjoy eating something I get indigestion. For example, the rich food at 2 and 3 star restaurants which tastes great going down does challenge my system at times. Or, maybe it's too much wine?

              Oh, this is me too! For example, I love hotpot/shabu shabu, but it gives me indigestion every time. I still eat it when I get a chance though: too good and fun to pass up. Might it be because I stuff myself too full? Nah...

              You know I feel exactly the same way. The only bum steer I've had on here is Kruang Tedd. Do they have a lot of off nights? The waitstaff was very friendly but the food tasted old, particularly the fish, a real no-no for me. So it goes. I'll try Ruen Pair.

                Out of curiosity, are you the Roger Simon who wrote the Moses Wine books? Or, the Roger Simon whose picture appears in those Donald Sterling/humanitarian ads?
                In any event, did you try the shrimp cakes? The chicken cooked in banana leaves? The spicy garlic beef? Maybe next time.

                    So, what have you written lately? Is Moses no longer a factor? What happened to the mom at the rest home?

                      There's a new Moses in the works which will appear next year from Simon & Schuster.

                        Over the weekend, I finished "Political Fictions" and ran across a recent edition of "The Big Fix" containing your epilogue. Reflecting on my naivete over the years, I wondered if the new Moses will have read Didion, or for that matter, what "Fix" would have been like if it centered on last year's "election."

                      Incidentally, thanks for turning me on to Valerie Simpson in your first book. After that I wore out both her solo stuff and a couple of LPs she did with her husband. But, other than collecting royalties, what have she and Ashford done lately? Subsequently, I had to switch to Randy Crawford for a fix, more recently, Cassandra Wilson, Dianne Reeves, Lauryn Hill, Macy Gray. What's in your CD player?

          I haven't had their bar snacks, but I ate there about a year ago, and thought their food stood up reasonably well to the high standard of thai food in the area. I remember the Tom Yum Kai being particularly sour, which I like. Also the curry tofu was pretty good.
