Regulars rave about: the lunch specials, drunken noodles, and crispy pad thai
Though it would be easy to play it safe and select Thai classics from Thep Phanom's expansive menu—both Frommer's and SFGate agree that the pad thai is a definite go-to—that would be selling chef Pat Parikanant short. For nearly 30 years, her eatery, set in a Victorian building and adorned with century-old Thai antiques, has been celebrated for its more unusual dishes. Diners would be wise to branch out and opt for the ped sawan—duck prepared in a delicate honey sauce and served over spinach—or the dancing lady, a single jumbo prawn stuffed with crab and drizzled with spicy sauce. Don't forget beverages: the Michelin Guide notes that the "creamy Thai iced tea is as good as any cocktail."
