I managed to get up early, one Saturday, and grab a bite at one of my favorite Thai restaurants. Although the sun was blazing, a hot bowl of noodle soup fit the bill. This one's a hard (although not 'bad') habit to break.
#56) Tom Yum noodle soup with thin rice noodles, medium spicy. This soup delivers all the elements of Thai food I love, with a punch! Sour, salty, sweet and spicy. Pork, pork and more pork! Topped with peanuts and a generous sprinkling of pork cracklins. Needless to say, my sensitive tummy only allows me to indulge in this soup once in a while.
Possibly the best coconut juice I've ever had, next to the real thing. No sugar, no pulp.
I highly, highly recommend eating at their Larkin St. location. Don't let the neighborhood deter you from the great food. Although avoid ordering Chinese-type dishes --they're bland and unexciting, in my opinion.
