Last night we were jonesing for Thai food in our local area (El Segundo). With few other options than Siam Bay (on Grand Ave in E.S.), and not wanting to venture down toward Manhattan beach or back up to Westchester, we gave up.
We lived in Westchester for 10 years so we're aware of Araya (which I thought was OK but not "great, knock-sox-off" like some gush about here), Siam (Lannathai on Lincoln/Manchester), Thai Thalay (Lincoln - recently refurbished and while I thought new menu was ok, not worth price or portions), and the mediocre Thai Dishes (manchester location - NOT Santa Monica location which was our favorite decades ago). Other options we've tried in our search were further afoot toward Venice (Flower of Siam - now Agra Indian).
Perhaps we need to simply look further south to Manhattan (Thai Dishes on Manh B Blvd)? Might even have to go back to Araya in Westchester, although I don't know if they'd deliver to E.S.
As a side note, the only place of the above mentioned that did an *excellent* Tom Ka Gai was "Flower of Siam" (which sadly went downhill and closed a few years ago).
Can anyone recommend:
A) notable Thai food in or near El Segundo, Westchester, Manhattan Beach
B) notable Tom Ka Gai (or other great soups!) in said area
C) Delivery friendly or decent "to-go" standards.
Willing to drive a few miles and hope they'd deliver to our locale.
