Ruen Pair Shopping Center

I'm a fan of Ruen Pair. But I'm also curious about all the other restaurants in the same shopping center. If anyone has tried Ruen Pair and 1 or more of the others, I'd be interested in their opinion, comparing the restaurants and food items. Thanks.

  1. Do not go to Red Corner. Their Americanized stuff is gross, so unless they're real Thai stuff is good, I'd sty far away.

      I thought Red Corner Asia was ok, but the lighting is so bright.

    2. Despite a fairly recent menu re-tool, Crispy Pork Gang & Grill is good for...wait for it, crispy pork. I haven't had their noodle dishes to compare with Ruen Pair. For noodles, and morning glory (without crispy pork) I've gone with Ruen Pair.

      1. Tthe board has discussed majority of the restaurants in the Plaza:

        Ganda & Crispy Pork Gang all have fantastic options. The noodle soups at CPG are solid. RP's is a rice based restaurant.

          Thank you. Don't know how I missed that thread but it was right on point. Noticed though that there was no discussion of Thai Patio which is at the corner. Anyway, thanks for the link.

            Tony, thanks for the breakdown. I haven't gotten around to exploring much of CPG's menu...yet. It's hard for me to get past that crispy pork.
