If someone blindfolded you and took you to Langbaan, you’d probably think you were in some high-end luxury hotel after trying the food. But when you open your eyes and see the lightbulbs in birdcages and small space with wooden tables, you’ll wonder A) where your friend found a blindfold and B) how quickly you can plan another trip to Portland just to eat here again. The multi-course meals change seasonally and use local ingredients in traditional Thai dishes like Khai Thoon Puu, an egg custard with Dungeness crab, fried enoki, and garlic oil. If you want to eat here, you’ll have to plan pretty far ahead, though if you can’t manage to get a reservation, put yourself on the waitlist and spots usually open up.
