Tarad

Crafting authentic Thai food at home generally involves a slew of pricey exotic ingredients, a crate of Singha, fish sauce in your eyes, and a whole lot of swearing, so if you just aren’t in the mood, head to this funky little pink facade-fronted offshoot of popular PaaDee restaurant. Since it’s part noodle bar, part market, you can consume a hot bowl of khao soi gai and a Thai iced tea with lime, then shop the impeccable selection of affordable Thai foodstuffs, then return home and con your significant other into making homemade gaeng hung lay. Well done.
