      Only partially useful because the dishes are not identified other in a very general sense ie. "a chicken dish".

    2. Crispy pork with brocolli is my favorite thing there...... the curries are seriously legit.

      1. Can't go wrong wth

        Nam tok beef
        Tom yum goong
        Broccoli with crispy pork
        Papaya salad

        They also do a better version of pad thai. I like a heaping spoonful of pickled chiles.

        Beef salad there is not my favorite but still decent.

        1. Definitely, the chinese broccoli w/ crispy pork. I also like the fried morning glory and the crispy fish salad (spicy.)

            seconding all of these, plus the special fried rice with pineapple and cashew. and you can BYOB!!

          2. I second the papaya salad (which is the best I've had in LA so far) and the morning glories. Be careful with the papaya salad though, cause it can bring the heat (but the heat goes well with the refreshing crunch).

            Pad See Ew is also tasty.

            1. The wonton soup (no kidding, it's wonderful).
              The aforementioned morning glories.
              Their specialties are in the Rice Soup A La Carte section on the menu (nos. 71-92), of which I love the duck stew, the sauteed clams, and the pork with Chinese olives. Also good, from the Rice Dishes section (50-59) are the duck, the chicken over rice and - my personal favorite - cha po (number 54), which has bbq pork, fried pork, and roasted duck with a tangy-hot sauce. Kind of a three-way fatty meat fest.

              1. Thanks to everyone. We went and loved Ruen Pair. Chinese broccoli with crispy pork was definitely great as many had noted but we loved everything. Loved the fact that we could bring our own beer. Thanks again to those that replied.
