S & I to Go

Sometimes the most unassuming places pack the most punch. This humble haunt serves up pad see ew with ample wok char, just-sweet-enough pineapple curry, and a soulful pad gra prow with enough heat to make you sweat. About that sweating thing—the five-chili marker on the menu (completely written in Thai) really does mean business. You’ve been warned.
