We went to Dok Bua in Brookline tonight once again, this time going for the slightly less exotic dishes. We ordered an appetizer of Thai pastry puffs with chicken. They were almost the perfect comfort food, with a flaky pastry and ground chicken and veggies inside. For our main entrees, we went with the basil fried rice (fresh and almost no grease, much like the kind at East Asia in Somerville) and the Singapore curry noodle with chicken (mild, but with tons of taste). I also had a chrysanthemum drink that was very sweet, but had a nice taste to it.
I think that Dok Bua is still my favorite Thai restaurant in the Boston area. The only others that come close are Khao Sarn and perhaps Brown Sugar.
