Deriving its name from the Thai word soi, which means local street, the culinary team at Soi 9 Thai Eatery strive to share their favorite dishes from street vendors and small restaurants in Thailand. Meat, seafood, and veggies adorn stir-fries and curries prepared with a modern twist, while specialties such as boat-noodle soup and crispy whole fish flaunt tastes traditional enough to be served in a Bangkok street cart. The majority of Soi 9's meat- and seafood-laden entrees can also be transformed into vegan-friendly or gluten-free meals simply by asking your server or wishing on the evening’s first spring-roll-shaped star. On hectic Portland Timbers game nights, crowds stream into the sleek dining space, which is peppered with minimalist furniture, pillow-strewn leather booths, and brightly colored drop lighting.

The bamboo steamers sit conspicuously behind the glass counter, spirals of steam escaping their closed lids as guests peer at the expansive menu and consider their options. There are three types of dumplings and four kinds of bao filled with the likes of barbecue pork, Szechuan chicken, coconut custard, and adzuki bean paste. In addition, the menu offers pad thai noodles and banh mi sandwiches. Guests sip loose-leaf teas to complement the meals, soaking in the sun from the large windows or out on the sidewalk patio.

For 13 years the popular Thai Peacock Restaurant has offered up a roster of traditional Thai menu items, concocting spicy and mild delicacies out of fresh, exotic, and locally grown ingredients. House specialties include Golden Noodle—stir-fried egg noodles with broccoli, carrot, cabbage, bean sprouts, and signature sauce ($10)—and Choo-Chee, a curry-sauced fish filet with lemon leaves ($13) often mispronounced by children doing their first train impression. Mango curry triggers sweet taste receptors with fresh mango, bell peppers, and green peas sautéed in a red-curry sauce ($9–$13.50), and Thai Peacock Restaurant's signature curry dish ($9–$13.50) enthralls the palate with a rich sauce so secret that the ingredients don't get to see each other until after they've been eaten.
