Vilairat Junthong has cooked at many of our favorite Thai spots (including Sticky Rice, Spoon Thai and Amarit), but here on her home turf she’s become known for an adjacent karaoke room and a vast Thai-language menu. The former can be booked for private parties, while the latter has been translated into English, enabling non-Thai to order Isaan-style specialties like marinated beef jerky, pickled bamboo shoot salad and crispy pork belly with Chinese broccoli. Junthong’s daughter Panitee is likely your server, and she’ll sweetly steer you in the right direction if the options overwhelm.
