I posted earlier in the week about my being at the Academy in December. I'm an out of towner and love Thai - doesn't need to be a fancy pristine room (as many are).
Looking for the real deal - indigenous, peasant Thai done like one was over there and it could be in a shoebox storefront with spartan accomodations. Just love well made Thai food, especially Mussels in Lemongrass/Kamfir/basil broth and great curries.
Appreciate all of you CH's input.
