Northern Thai food @ Spicy BBQ Restaurant

Yes, that's what this place is called, "Spicy BBQ Restaurant" (helpfully shortened to "Spicy BBQ" on the awning). It's tiny storefront next to Arax Falafel, corner Santa Monica and Normandie.

I just went there for noodles on a tip, and found they have a little section of northern Thai dishes (about 12 in all). I had Northern Thai Egg Noodles (N7, "kow soy"). This was a really good dish, basically a dark curry broth with coconut milk, chicken thigh (you can get beef too), thin flat noodles, spicy preserved greens, plus a garnish of cilantro, red onion, and lime. Very complex flavors to the broth. The noodles didn't travel well in styrofoam, so I won't get it to go next time, but it was still really tasty. Also picked up a huge fruit salad from the cart in the parking lot.

I wonder if anyone else been who can recommend other things to try here. (they deliver w/in 3 miles). I would never have ventured inside which looks like a shabby, generic-L.A. Thai place (actually, you can barely see through the windows) but am glad I did.
