Derek R



Hi Kat - Not sure if that would even work.....

Yes, what I call "Ameri-Thai" CC.

Totally Derek....not terrible, but still haven't found anything I enjoy.


This place is pretty close to my parents' home and, given it has more variety than your standard Ameri-Thai place (I'm stealing that), we've always liked it. Top two dishes I always get are the Duck Curry and the Papaya Salad - have no idea if they're at all authentic but they're pretty tasty to me.

Are there any legitimately authentic thai places?


Just came back from Portland. Tried Nong's for the first time. Their broth and ginger dipping sauces were so good!


Hi Loren - The food isn't's just not my style. Though I enjoyed trying stuff out. You can try the som tom at Thai Papaya, which is closest to what we had in Thailand. Or try out some Lao style papaya salad which is really more funky. I'll return to Star Anise to try the papaya salad and pad see ew one of these days.

Yes, both are key to good Khao Man Gai Junichi. Along with the rice; which is often overlooked.
