The no-frills, home-style cooking of this Thai Town joint attracts traditionalists citywide. You won't find fusion or overly sweet noodles at Sanam Luang Cafe—only some of the best Asian comfort foods (and slightly intimidating waitresses). Start with the classic tom kha kai ($7.95), a spicy coconut soup with plump chicken, mushrooms, lemongrass, lime juice and fresh chile for a refreshing starter. Then, take a menu detour with the khao pad krapaow gai ($7.25), a satisfying and fiery chicken-basil-rice stir fry topped with an optional egg, and khana moo grob ($6.95)—crispy and juicy chunks of pork paired with broth-wilted Chinese broccoli is a must. Be prepared: Wear relaxed clothing and prepare to dig in.
