I've hit several places so far and haven't found much that i like. Looking for very authentic places, preferably that gear their food towards local Thai people. Preferably N.Thai and Isaan stuff.
So far i've been to Urban Thai Bistro, Thai House, a place on maybe Burrard whose name i've forgetten, and Simply Thai on Hamilton. Simply Thai was the worst of the bunch and ridiculously expensive: the somtam was made w/ what tastes like canned/jarred chili (as opposed to made/chopped to order) and contained no dried shrimp and hardly any peanuts. The sticky rice (5 dollars!) was not really khao-nio at all, but was mushy overcooked piping-hot regular rice. Nice people working there, but the food was Simply Bad.
As rec'd here, i plan to try O-Thai, and Montri's once they reopen.
Any other suggestions?
