Your Favorite Thai Dishes

I can name just a couple on top of my head that are among my favorites:

1) Pad Thai
2) Pad Kee Mow
3) Kratongtong
4) Tom Yum

Anyone else?

I fell in love with this dish a few years ago when I was in Chiang Mai. I've had it several times since in Bangkok and again in Chiang Mai. Sadly, I haven't been able to find it here in the U.S.

Kaow Soi Gai Famous Chiang Mai Curry Noodles with Chicken

http://www.fourseasons.com/chiangmai/menu_1418.html


The dish is served in a bowl, with curry noodles with chicken on the bottom. It is crowned with crispy noodles with some condiments, both sweet and sour. In your mouth, it is a juxstoposition of soft and cruncy, sweet/sour and spicy.

I agree that Pad Thai is the best. Some places make it better than others, but Pad Thai is the best.

It's hard to beat my Gaeng Phet Ped Yang.

I learned to cook it recently from a chef in Thailand and I love making it. ^ Very easy, too.

There are so many, but my son and I are always looking for the best Panang Curry. So far, the winner is a place called Yum Yum Thai... a hole in the wall on the ourtskirts of Atlanta.

This from someone who's not yet been to Thailand, so I hope to add to my favorites list when I go.

All these talks about Pad Thai is making me very hungry!

I used to think that Pad Thai is the only Thai dish out there until Sala Rim Nam at the Oriental Bangkok completely zapped this fallacy out of me. Thai food is just great. There's too many to name as 'favorites'

Did you go for the dinner or lunch buffet? I've been to both and I must say that I preferred the lunch buffet by far. The dinner was just so-so and I wasn't impressed by the dance performance.

Lunch is completely different. It was a good introduction to a variety of Thai dishes and everything was delicious. The service was superb and there were staff members always wanting to help us, explain to us what was in each dish, and offered to carry our dishes to our table. You can also have a better view of the river during the daytime.

Lunch is also a lot cheaper.
