  1. I have not had it here but everything i have had here has been excellent
    Love the Phat Prik Gra Pao (T-3) It is very spicy!!

    1. I had some excellent renditions at S&I Thai and Dok Bua.

      1. I like Rod Dee's best in town (I've had more consistent luck with it than the one at Dok Bua)-- in particular, what makes it my standby is that they'll usually ratchet up the heat for you if you ask. It doesn't have anything out of the ordinary in it (dried shrimps, peanuts, etc.) but it's generally fresh and tasty.

        1. Xinh Xinh has a very nice Vietnamese version of green papaya salad.

          1. They do an excellent green mango salad at Yoma. Think they also had a papaya salad.
