Named for the owner's mother, a creator of signature sauces, Potjanee Authentic Thai Restaurant dishes up a menu of traditional Thai fare that satisfies meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Diners begin meals with appetizers such as duck- and vegetable-wrapped indian roti bread served with tamarind sauce ($6.95) for a bite both tender and crunchy, like a love poem spelled out in baby carrots. For the main dish, the phad pring king's zucchini and string beans sauté in a spicy basil sauce with a choice of protein ($9.95–$13.95), and the crispy whole red snapper specialty swims against a current of chili-garlic sauce ($18.95). Patrons savor spoonfuls of a dessert, such as sweet rice with egg custard, as they admire the colorful, Thai-inspired painting on the exposed-brick wall and spherical, suspended lights paranormal investigators have deemed not to be autonomous.
