We’re big fans of Lers Ros’ other outposts around the city, and the one in Hayes Valley is no exception. The menu here is larger than most rural Iowa phone books and has everything from a typical pad see-ew to stir-fried rabbit. Come here with a group - both so you can try more things and because the portion sizes are good to split. If you’re not up for alligator, go for the pad kra pow moo krob with crispy skin pork belly and peppers. The spice level here isn’t too insane either, so don’t be afraid to ask for things to be spicy.
