Siam Express packs a menu of traditional recipes and the talents of a former Lemongrass chef into a pintsize stucco storefront on a neighborhood street. An appetizer of calamari introduces Thailand's sea-centric cuisine and can be conveniently disguised as hoop earrings when walking home past hungry merfolk. Leek dumplings add flecks of spicy greenery to fried fare.
Drunken noodles assemble a protein of choice, rice noodles, soy sauce, basil, garlic, and chilies into a complex umami bomb. The capsaicin-confident can order many of the generously sized dishes—including a quartet of curries—prepared at the five-star spice level.
