Following the River

The Asian variety at Mekong Ramen House

Ari LeVaux finds that the food at this Laotian-owned restaurant is just as diverse and pan-Asian as the river for which it is named.

Thai Cuisine II

A garden of surprises

Stepping into the pragmatically named Thai Cuisine II is like taking a 15-hour plane ride in the blink of an eye. While it’s not exactly Thailand inside, the dining room is a pleasant sanctuary, warmly painted in earthy red and sunset orange, and hung with near-florescent paintings of colorful, idyllic scenes. You quickly forget that you just walked into a red metal roofed A-frame that looks like an old Dairy Queen.

Siam Café

Bangkok’s best in Burque

One of my favorite ways to eat fish is fried with Thai curry on top. It’s the best of two worldsfried fish being a favorite dish of mine and Thai curry being another.

Pumpkin Thai

Rule the Thanksgiving table with a Thai-style pumpkin custard

I'm no stranger to pumpkin pie. I owned and operated a small pumpkin pie business after college, where I experimented widely, trying countless permutations on the basic theme, and tweaked my way to some fantastic pie. I thought I knew most everything there is to know about pumpkin pie. But walking around a night-market in Bangkok, Thailand, I had an experience that turned my concept of pumpkin pie inside-out.
