Fodor's Expert Review SriPraPhai
A long-beloved, cash-only Thai option, SriPraPhai (pronounced "see-PRA-pie") has a huge menu, and it's hard to go wrong: just make sure you order the crispy watercress salad, larb (ground pork salad with mint and lime juice), sautéed chicken with cashews and pineapple, kao-soy (curried egg noodles), and/or roast-duck green curry. If you go with a few people, order the delicately flavored whole steamed fish. There's a large separate menu for vegetarians. But prepare your palate: your mouth might feel like a five-alarm fire by the time you're finished. In summer, the lovely back patio strung with lights somehow feels like a perfect setting for the spicy fare.
