Are you still waiting for Renu Nakorn to reopen to get a fix of northern Thai cooking? Cancoon churns out some fine Isaan food, including sai krawk isaan—a type of sausage, 100 links of which are hand-stuffed weekly by Eddie and his family, says TonyC. Laotian soup with kabocha, lotus root, bamboo, and more sets a high standard for 2008.
Renu Nakorn should be reopening in late February, says russkar, who in the meantime has been hitting Tropika instead.
There’s also Renu Nakorn’s perennial rival, Thai Nakorn.
