Sripraphai (newbie review)

brian j | Aug 8, 2003 10:19 AM

bbq beef w/ spicey sauce = A (very tender & delicious)
bbq beef w/ lime, chili & basil = B+ (refreshing)
papaya salad w/ dried shrimps = B (interesting, sorta like thai coleslaw)
shrimps wrapped in springroll wrapper = B-

crispy pork w/ chili & basil = C- (it wasn't so much crispy, as it was really just kinda hardened & hard to eat)
duck green curry = B- (could have easily been an A+ had there been more meat, the curry itself was superb)
whole fried fish w/ mango = B-
coconut rice = A- (nice subtlely rice sweetened w/ coconut)

coconut ice cream w/ rice = A-
custard w/ purple sticky rice = B-

Overall it was a great food adventure, although the dishes were not perfect, I have a better idea of what to order next time. It was certainly some of the very spiciest food that I've ever eaten.

The bill came to $71 for 5 people.

So now that I've tried Sripraphai, I'd like to know what other Thai restaurants everyone consider to be the best around.
