Had an underwhelming dinner at Thai Nakorn in San Bruno. It's down the street from Mings, the hand-pulled noodle place.
Spicy beef salad: charbroiled strips of beef with cucumbers, red onion slivers, mint, and ssome smallish chunks of iceberg lettuce in a zippy citrus dressing, garnished with finely shredded cabbage and carrot.
The beef salad was the best part of the meal, and we would both order it again.
Spicy fried rice with chicken: mostly rice, with some chunks of white meat and green bell pepper. This wasn't bad, just bland and uninteresting. We only ate what we could dredge through the remaining dressing from the beef salad.
Pad Kee Mow with beef: served extra spicy, as we requested. The beef was savory and tender, but the wide rice noodles were cooked almost to mush. Also on the plate: bean sprouts, white onion, and green bell pepper. I much prefer Suriya's version.
I regret not ordering the Catfish Salad (specials board), but am unlikely to make a special trip back to San Bruno to try it. With tax, tip, and one Iced Coffee, the tab was $28.
