Fans of the late great SE Asia restaurant in Lowell should try to make it to the lunch buffet at Thip's Kitchen, owned and operated by the original SE Asia people. I'm not sure they're doing well out of the gate due to an odd location (in the lobby of the Lowell Textile Museum), and poor advertising. I love this food, and I hope they make it.
