Khao Soy

Are there any Thai restaurants in the DC area that serve Khao Soy (also spelled Kao Soy)?

Failing that, are there any restaurants anywhere from here to Boston that do??

I'm from Chicago, have had it at two restaurants there, and absolutely LOVE it. I have yet to find it anywhere else. Actually, the second restaurant in Chicago actually had it listed under "Crispy Noodles" and wondered how I knew that it was called Khao Soy.

Just in case the dish is traveling under an assumed name out here...it's a chicken curry soup/noodle dish, definitely with more juice than some curries, but not as watery as tom kha kai or anything. The soup contains noodles, and there are also crispy noodles on top. I've been told the curry is a yellow curry, but it definitely has been tweaked, as the yellow curries I've ordered in an attempt to find it have not been satisfying.

Please let me know if there's any place I can get my Khao Soy fix out here! Thanks.
