Take one step inside this Thai gem hiding under the Brown Line tracks and you’re hit with a full-color poster provided by LTHForum endorsing the authentic eats lurking on the “Classics” menu. You’ll find the sour Isaan-style sausage and sweet beef jerky other real-deal Thai joints traffic in, but take advantage of the less-common items as well: ground pork simmered in curried coconut milk then plopped over a crispy omelette, meatballs floating in sour broth that smacks of star anise and a beautiful mess of bamboo slivers slicked with green chili paste.
