Silver Lake's Wat Dong Moon Lek has a menu that's anything but ordinary Thai. The upscale, modern spot focuses on noodles—try the namesake beef noodle soup (small, $3.99, big, $6.99) Bangkok’s version of pho, and kow soi ($8.99), Northern-style curry with chewy egg noodles topped with crispy noodles and a bright mix of pickled mustard green and red onion. For the latest in Thai culinary trends—did someone say Japanese fusion?—try the tom yum udon ($8.99) a spicy, lemongrass lime chile broth with fat soup noodles that bring an entirely new flavor to your otherwise standard bowl. For something extra special, ask for the off-menu, top-secret order of Laarb tod ($7.99), composed of crispy deep fried balls of Northeastern-style minced meat and herbs.
