Thai Kitchen, north Boulder (CO)

I have been working my way through all of the Thai restaurants in Boulder (still need to try Elephant Hut and that one on the Hill), and Thai Kitchen is the first one that I would go back to. It recently opened in the space shared with North Boulder Cafe - replacing Bangkok Cuisine with a new owner, menu and presumably a new chef.

The menu isn't that extensive - curries, noodles, rice, soups, chef specials, and a few desserts. There are quite a few duck dishes, and I think that duck is one of the items that you can choose in the dishes that are "pick your protein".
We had three dishes - duck with garlic sauce, pad kee noodles, and a whole fried fish (tilapia?) with veggies (chefs special "C"). The noodles we ordered "hot", the other two "medium hot" - unusually for Boulder, the noodles were indeed quite hot but not overwhelmingly so (you could go further to "thai hot" if you chose), and the medium dishes had some mild heat. The fish was indeed whole, and had been slashed so that it could be picked apart more easily - it was crispy on the outside and tender inside. All of the dishes were flavorful, and not at all sweet (my peeve with many americanized Thai places is the use of way too much sugar). One of our party felt that the dishes were overly salty, but the other two of us disagreed (I really like salty flavors though). Prices were generally in the $10-15 range for entrees.

I would like to return in the future to sample some of their curries and soups.
