We found ourselves mourning the inevitable end of Thai Farm Kitchen’s tom yum soup before we could even see the bottom of the bowl. How often does soup cause premature bereavement? Not very, which is why this one - first sour, then spicy, then sweet - deserves a special commemorative plaque. Sit underneath the rattan fish nets at this Windsor Terrace spot, and order food until you can’t see your table. Don’t miss the pad thai - theirs is loaded with tamarind-glazed shrimp and calamari that even your seafood-hesitant friends will value deeply.
