Purists may scoff at the ho-hum offerings, but this long-time favorite continues to pack in crowds who may prefer their pad si-ewe come a little more Anglofied than authentic. You’ll find perfectly fine versions of standard noodle and rice dishes like lad nar (crispy wide noodles sauteed with veggies and topped with gravy) and Chinese fried rice. Vegetarians will do particularly well choosing from inspired sides like watercress with garlic bean sauce and chilled steamed broccoli with Dijon-soy dressing.
