Things are certainly looking up. A great restaurant from Oakland opens in the Mission! Will wonders never cease? Hawker Fare in a large attractive place on Valencia.
A few years ago, one couldn't find anything approaching an authentic Thai experience around here. Then came Lers Ros on Larkin, and its branches. And the superb Kin Khao. Now, frankly we are better off than LA (Jitlada) and Vegas (Lotus), where one previously had to voyage for great Thai.
The Chicken and Rice (called Kao Mun Ga on the menu and referred to as "poached chicken") was truly superb, moist, flavorful. Gosh, you would be happy with that in Singapore. As good, maybe even better than the great version at Kin Khao. One of the best dishes in our City.
We also had a fine papaya salad with crushed raw crab, spicy and perfect.
