This Thai place is shoved into a corner in the bottom floor of a hotel, but that doesn’t stop the food from being outstanding. At lunch, prices hover around $20 per dish, so it’s not the cheapest lunch in town, but the portions are large enough to split with someone else. The khao soi is heavy and spicy, and the pork bowl is light, but rich. You won’t need anything other than a main, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting the mushroom hor mok to start.
