Anything curried with peanut and coconut milk sauce. Mmmmm Mmmmm. You can put that on a towel and you'd eat it.

As an appetizer, Satays ROCK - small pieces of chicken (or pork) on wooden skewers, and with peanut sauce.

A good noodle dish is Pad Thai. If made well, it kicks the ass of any other noodle dish (including chines, vietnamese, etc).



Other than that, it can depend from restaurant to restaurant. My favorite place in Chicago had an awesome yellow curry with chicken and sweet potato.

Some places also have a beef dish, in some kind of marinade (with coconut in it), onions. I think it might be called Masam Nue something or other.

Chihuahua is good in a pinch, but I prefer mid-size, more tender dogs.

I usually order seafood dishes, but I am with DK Prof on the Chicken Satay as an appetizer and the Pad Thai.

Dk Prof, was the restaurant in Chicago Arun's? That place is great!

No - it was in Evanston, but I figured I'd just call it Chicago

When I was a doctoral student at Northwestern, there was a place called Siam Square (I think) in Evanston that was the best Thai food I have ever had.

I went back to Kellogg for a conference about a month ago, and me and one of my buddies were going to treat ourselves to dinner there - but when we got there the courtyard was gone, and there was a new building there (and no restaurant ) Luckily the barbecue place (Merle's) was still there, so we weren't completely robbed!



But next time I go up there, I'm going to look for Arun's.

I really like their stir fried noodle or rice dishes. My favorite local dishes are pineapple fried rice, singapore noodles, and stir fried yellow curry. Good stuff!

Pad Thai, if you like peanuts.

Pork Pad Thai

Most Thai restraunts have it and it is a good pork and noddle dish that is not too spicy.

I apologize, I thought we were talking about a Thai Massage Parlor.

Pad Thai is always a sure bet, especially if curry isn't your thing

How are they supposed to know how well you're going to tip while they're cooking your food?

The food is usually good enough that you'll want to go back.

Pad Prik is my fave.
Link Posted: 8/22/2005 6:07:19 AM EDT
There are several Thai places near me and I have got in the habit with some of my friends . I am no good at remembering the thai names , I just read the descriptions and wing it . I am not a fan of curry so some of the dishes are off limits for me . All of our places are small family run places and I enjoy the nice people and the reasonably priced food. Tasty stuff

+1 on the Spicy Basil Noodle

This is the definitive Thai dish, that makes or breaks a restaurant (IMO).

They must be liberal w/ the basil and meat (this dish goes nicely w/ chicken as the meat), as the basil is essential.


Link Posted: 8/22/2005 6:35:36 AM EDT
Have been eating Thai for years and our absolute favorite is Panang Chicken. Its kinda sweet and hot at the same time served over rice.
Link Posted: 8/22/2005 7:10:00 AM EDT
We used to eat at Bangkok Blue in Boston
everyday for lunch.

I always, without fail, ordered either Basil
Chicken or Cashew Nut Chicken.
