The Road from Bangkok

It’s officially called Panya Thai, but in our household it’s known as Let’s Go!

Someone at our table ordered crab fried rice despite the waiter's warning (much to his credit) that it contained surimi. It was the one lackluster item sampled here, and not only because of the gnarly nature of the cooked fake crab, but also the rice itself was bland and pretty much bereft of vegetables.

Panya was out of pumpkin custard for dessert, but sa ku tourdam and bualoy phuk proved to be more than adequate substitutions. The former brought tapioca pearls and sweet black beans in a bowl of coconut milk, while the latter was based on the same white juice but stocked with lavender dumplings made from taro and rice flour — ideal for babies, very old people, and folks, like me, who just seem to be drawn to mushy desserts.

I am also attracted to Thai restaurants with friendly service, authentic food, and affordable prices. The place is called Panya Thai, but in our household the official name is Let's Go.
