Chiang Mai



Larb gai, ground chicken mixed with lime juice, fresh chili, red onions, mint and scallions on lettuce. Spicy. $11.95

This cozy family-operated Thai restaurant is worth a stop. The interior is modest, but the menu has all the Thai greatest hits. Find colorful curries, clay pot cookery and pad ped talay, a seafood dish cooked with Thai herbs. Prices are very reasonable and portions aren’t overly large. The Siamese platter is a sampling of chicken satay, curry triangles and baby egg rolls.

The outdoor dining space is pleasant. It’s within earshot of 101A, but a nice fountain helps sublimate the traffic noise. Listen for the roosters. Their happy hens lay eggs for several menu items, including the bibimbap, pad thai and vegetable fried rice.
