Chef Phannavong uses 20 years of kitchen experience to create decadent Thai feasts such as yellow-curry chicken ($6.50 at lunch; $9.50 at dinner), a crispy basil cod fillet ($11.95), and spicy stir-fried thai noodles topped with egg, cabbage, and snow peas ($6.50–$7.50).
Bangkok Place Thai Restaurant
The terms “coward” and “brave” are neither insults nor compliments at Bangkok Place Thai Restaurant; rather, they signify the level of spiciness a customer can handle. Chef Keo Phannavong and his wife Ann helm the casual eatery, where Keo brings 20 years of experience—and a slew of his mother’s recipes—to the kitchen. Using fresh ingredients, such as basil leaves, lemon grass, coconut milk, and chili, the master chef concocts a wide range of authentic Thai dishes that pack as little or as much spice as the patron desires or can trick his date into eating. The restaurant offers familiar Thai favorites, such as pad thai and tom yum soup, as well as some more obscure entrees, such as pla jien—a steamed fish topped with ginger and baby corn.
