Going tomorrow night can anyone give recommendations beyond the usual satay, curry, pad thai, etc?

        Strongly second miang kum and haw moak.

        1. re: galangatron

          Thanks but I did not see som tum or drunken noodles on their menu??

            Actually just looked again and saw som tum under salads, thanks.

          2. It's been a while since I've been there...If it's still on the menu, try mee grob for an appetizer. We used to get it all the time when we lived in Los Angeles but it's hard to find here in Boston - cripsy, thin fried rice noodles in a sweet sauce/coating with shrimp and other tasty tidbits. Miang kum is different but also tasty, very light and not filling.

            We also liked the barbequed chicken that came with sticky rice. There was also an entree dish, a custard of sorts with salmon that was amazing...I can't find it on the online menu so I don't know what it was called, sorry!

              That's the Haw Moak that others have mentioned.

              Haw Moak * northern thai spices with coconut milk, curry, nappa cabbage, sweet basil & aromatic kaffir leaves steamed in banana leaves for aroma & flavor, a truly traditional dish with a "mousse like" texture

                I totally agree. Kao soi here is their best dish. It's not on the lunch menu but they'll make it if you ask.

              2. the fried rice, believe it or not, is good. They have versions w/ mango chunks and breaded/fried chicken on top. The rice is a lot more tasty than chinese versions and I don't think it's from oil used to fry it...

                1. Most of my faves already mentioned by galangatron. I'll add pla neung ma-now (whole steamed striped bass). Also consider getting a cocktail or wine recs from Noon, the bar manager / sommelier. She's great.
