Long Beach south of Anaheim Blvd is liberally sprinkled with Thai restaurants such as Thai BBQ, Bankok, Thai Silk, Phuket Thai, Star of Siam, etc. I haven't been to many of them, but the few that I have been to, I'm somewhat disappointed. None of them seem to have the distinct yet balanced flavors of salty, sweet, bitter, and sour that is so characteristic of most of the places in Thai Town. Sadly, some of them just taste like poorly executed Chinese stirfry.
I want to taste the galangal, lemongrass, chilies! Where should I go?
