Everyone has their favorite Rod Dee location but what’s consistent across all four outposts is the authenticity of the cuisine. Start with the scallion pancakes and Thai crab nuggets before moving onto the entrees. With such a wide-ranging menu, you’re best served by zooming in on the specialties, especially the pad thai with crispy chicken, the boat noodle soup and the mango crispy duck. But then you’ll smell the dishes at the next table, suffer from order envy, and realize you’ll need to come back and explore the more traditional noodle and stir-fry dishes. Just leave room for dessert, especially the fried banana with honey and the mango with sticky rice. Make sure to hit the ATM beforehand, because all outposts are cash only.
