Another lovely meal at Presidentwo

I can't believe how good this place is. It was pouring today and the only thing that would warm me back up was some spicy food and the generous smiles of the staff at Presidentwo. We shared Basil leaves with chili and shrimp -- incredible, warm, mahogany, savoury sauce, delectable vegetables (oh for just a few more mushrooms!) -- and chicken noodle which was beautifully executed (mild but exceptionally fresh and flavourful). Lunch came with rice, egg roll, and soup or salad. We spent about $20 on lunch (including 2 beverages) and have enough leftovers for another lunch each. Every time I go here, I can't stop smiling. I can't wait until the orginal location, President Thai, is back up and running.

I have on previous occasions tried (and loved) the president BBQ chicken, spicy duck salad, president BBQ duck, roasted duck curry, and crying tiger. I will slowly make my way through the menu, but what should I try first?
