I've recently moved into the Hollywood neighborhood and am interested in trying out the Thai places that are now so nearby.
My question is - what dishes at what restaurants would you recommend that would not overwhelm 2 children with spicyness. One of my kids is a spice wimp. The other like a little spice, but is a small child, and a little to him may mean barely noticeable to you. He'll put a dab of tabasco or scriracha on his food cause he sees dad doing it...
I've read about Sapp and the boat noodles many a time, but a broth thickened with blood and floating organ chunks doesn't really float my boat if you will, authentic though it may be.
We like stir fry noodle and rice dishes, thai curries, papaya salad, grilled meat skewers, etc.
One additional question - please let me know if you think there will be a language barrier at any of the Thaitown Thai restaurants. One of my kids is peanut allergic, and it is important that I can get that information across.
