        No english on wall or board. They might be double listed and appear in the menu.

            Not speaking Thai, I walk over to the board with a waitress and have her tell me what it says. Other posters have pointed out that the reaction they get to this procedure can be spotty. I come mid afternoon when it is slow have gotten good detailed descriptions.

        Had what I assume to be Nam Prik Ong which was listed on the wall. Served with hard boiled egg, double crisped pork, cucs, and steamed vegies. Very nice.
        Broke out of Sour Sausage habit and had the Northern Sausage which plays the Ethel Merman extrovert to the Janet Baker thoughtful Sour Sausage. Again have some and be happy.

          Any non spicy suggestions? I want to go after I pick my mother up at the airport. She's a total spice wimp... Anything suggestions that'll make her happy?
