A corner joint on Anaheim Street, which has went though many iterations of Thai restaurants over the past couple decades, has changed hands once again in January, and a very interesting small corner of the menu has been focused on “Chiang Rai Local Foods.” So far the new owner/chef does not have the variety of Amphai Northern Thai Food Club, but some of the dishes are just as good and worth checking out. The restaurant is cute, the prices are good, and the quality is great.
Dropped by this weekend for some lunch. The khao soi with ribeye was excellent, definitely a great addition to the area. Ordered it medium spice level and could have handled more heat. Luckily they have chili powder in the condiment tray to bring up the heat. I do like Northern Thai Food Club a bit more, however this was still damn good.
Really good Khao Soi. Would have liked a chicken leg instead of breasts. They now ask for how spicy you want it because people would waste the nam prik pow or complain it was too spicy. Even in a coconut curry it’s too spicy for some lol
Would come back and try the kanoom jeen nam ngiaw.
Love the decor. My guess is maybe with the Bib and foodie media attention it brought a lot of people that are not quite FTC-types.
