A work colleague offered to take me out to lunch. The conditions are that it must be Thai or Vietnamese within driving distance of Miracle Mile, and she's a vegetarian.
My gut reaction was to 86 the Vietnamese and head to Thai Town for some pad see ew at Sanamluang. However, Thai Town may be a bit too far. When I told her that there's really not any great Vietnamese food in the area, she said "I'll settle for just good Vietnamese food." Don't know if that exists either.
Anyone been to Paddy Rice http://www.thepaddyrice.com/ on Melrose? Absolutely Phobulous? Thai Town is sounding better and better.
