Good God, Sri Siam Cafe!

Rosiepigs | Sep 8, 201102:02 PM     42

I just moved back to North Hollywood (sadly) and have been to Sri Siam twice in the past week. Good God this place is amazing! I don't remember trying their more American dishes, but the Thai specialties I've had are amazing. It's one of the few places to get crunchy rice salad in LA, and theirs does not disappoint. Plus, they're really generous with the herbs that go alongside. The grilled beef salad is good and sour and full of rice-powder. But the khao soi! I kept telling myself it wasn't as good as Spicy BBQ, but then gladly shoveled spoonful after spoonful into my mouth. The beef doesn't seem to have been cooked in the soup, and the pickled vegetables aren't as good as Spicy BBQ, but the soup is just delicious. I'd ask for seconds if I could.

Next visit, I'd like to try some seafood options? I'm not big on shellfish, but does anyone have any filet or salmon suggestions?

And if you haven't been to Sri Siam, GO NOW. so good.
