Thai House Express [San Francisco]

Tried some new dishes, all great. I think the first three were specials.

Fried squid. Perfect, nice young squid, super-tender.

Fried rice with shrimp paste. Waitress asked if we'd had it before, we said no but we know what shrimp paste is and love it. She asks, how spicy, I say, Thai spicy. Yeah, that'll happen. It was great but not terribly spicy.

Pork leg stew noodle soup. Same great flavor, new liquid form.

95. "param Pak crispy tofu with mixed vegetables topped with peanuts sauce": the waitress recommended this when we asked for a dish with lots of veg to balance all the fat and starch. Reads like steam-table Chinese but it was actually great.
