New to Town...Thai abounds, but anything amazing?

chucktowneater | Jul 17, 2007 02:16 PM

I am moving to Chicago next weekend, and have a friend visiting a few days after that who asked me if there were really good Thai restaurants. I have read that Thai food in Chicago is like Chinese in NY: ubiquitous, but is there anything that's can't-miss?

I went to TAC Quick last time I was in town and found it so-so. I'm not trying to hold myself as a Thai expert, but I do enjoy it and eat it alot. I want to show off my new digs and represent Chi town well so I'm curious as to what people's favorites are. My searches on the site were limited mainly to TAC and Spoon, so others would be appreciated. I've read about Arun's but I can't stomach spending $85 on Thai food. Thanks in advance.
