Guys, check out new Thai restaurant, Khoa San, on 1435 North West Flanders Street. Khoa San was named like a road in Bangkok, a center of backpackers from around the world. They serve street food in smaller portion and have Thai beer brewed by a brewery in Ashland. Both lager

and ginger ale beer are good. I like the owner's idea in bringing Tuk tuk, a three wheel open-sided car to Portland. You can sit and eat on this one. The usual tuk tuks are smaller. They also bring a real food cart found on streets in Thailand as well. The bright orange vests staff wear made me smiled because people who actually wear them in Thailand are motorcycle taxis. Yes, you can hop on a motorbike in rush hour and they will zigzag along the roads to take you to where you want to go. Just have to hold on to the driver!

If you like Pad Thai, a real one that doesn't fry with peanut sauce, go to Nudi. A new noodle house on Woodstock Blvd. It's delicious.

Another good Thai restaurant, Paadee (6 SE 28Th Ave), try Kanom Gui Chai (snack), for lunch try Joek (rice porridge- you must add egg and grounded pork OR if you like noodle try Ba mhee muu dang. For dinner we love Gra prao muu grob. Oh.. don't forget to try Thai beer made from Jusmine Rice named :Phuket Beer". As a Thai person, I do like the food here.

Hey Fasai - have you tried Khun Pics Thai on Belmont?  It is the BEST Thai I have ever had here in Portland. The Tom Kha is truly magical...I am in *love*!

If you like cooking Thai food, especially red curry, use this red curry paste. You can buy from Fubonn Supermarket. It tastes like curry made in Thailand. Tone it down with coconut milk so it's not too spicy for your palette.

 

The diffrent between "Red Curry" and "Padpet, Padphet, Pad Prik Gaeng" (depends on how each restaurant spells the dish) is that curry has coconut milk but another doesn't.

Definitely my MOST FAVORITE type of food. Favorite local restaurants: SOI 9, Kinara (by Lincoln High School). I have always "liked" Thai, but after spending a month and half in Penang Malaysia really grew to LOVE it! I am always looking for new local places to try. If you are ever out around Hillsboro, try Thai Princess at the corner of Cornell and 25th. Very good!

Angela, I went to the SE Division and must say I agree with you. Food's just ok. However, the owner sure is real smart businessman.. He turned the very normal Thai street food that costs only $1-$3 in Thailand into the restaurant food at the price of whatever the menu tells.  same as the food at Ping. Rice Soup is only $1-$2 now it's $8-$10 here.

Fasai - have you tried either of the Pok Pok locations? We went to the NE PokPok and had so-so food. Not the rave reviews we had heard. We will try again to see if it was a fluke but seemed expensive and just ok. Have you tried it?

Thai Peacock on SW 9th & Oak is really good. New Thai food cart that is delicious is on SW 5th & Oak called "Ping Yang Khang Tang" which means bbq on sidewalk in Thai. For ladies who like healthy food and salad try Yam Woonsen at the cart. It's a glass noodle salad with minced pork or chicken, onion and other ingredients. Typical Thai salad with lime juice, chilli and fish sauce.

The People's Republic of Portland at Portland Center Stage

March 21, 2015 at 7:30pm to April 19, 2015 at 9:30pm
Portland is garnering lots of attention lately—for our leadership in sustainability; for our food scene; for being, well, weird. And now we’ve caught the attention of writer/actor Lauren Weedman. In the few months she spent here in the spring of 2011 performing her play BUST, Lauren’s imagination was captured by all things Portland. And so we asked her to write a play. About Portland. How will this former Daily Show faux-spondent treat us? What does Portland look like through Weedman’s unique…See More

Other Desert Cities at Portland Center Stage

February 21, 2015 at 7:30pm to March 22, 2015 at 9:30pm
Polly and Lyman Wyeth are a quintessential California success story. Well-connected politically, comfortable financially, and enjoying their retirement years in Palm Springs, where they can still move in the Republican, old Hollywood social circle of their working years. So what if Polly’s sister and former screenwriting partner is a just-out-of-rehab liberal, and their grown children are also ideological opposites from their parents? Well, families accept these differences, don’t they? But…See More

Threesome at Portland Center Stage

January 24, 2015 at 7:30pm to March 8, 2015 at 9:30pm
Leila and Rashid attempt to solve their relationship issues by inviting a relative stranger into their bedroom to engage in a threesome. What begins as a hilariously awkward evening soon becomes an experience fraught with secrets and tension, raising issues of sexism, possession and independence. El Guindi’s play Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World was the winner of the prestigious Steinberg/American Theater Critics Association’s New Play Award in 2012, and he is also the recipient of the…See More
