Iron Wok

Outstanding Kung Pao Chicken lunch special with fried rice at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo! Comes with salad.


Pailin Thai Cafe

One of my favorite Pad Thai lunch specials at Pailin Thai in Rancho Bernardo! Unfortunately it seems like their portions are getting smaller. 🤔🧐

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Very very “Spicy Korean Bowl” at Pei Wei! I like spicy but this one was a bit too much for me! 😭

Pinto Thai

Outstanding Pad Thai at Pinto Thai in Ramona, CA!

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding Pad Thai at Pei Wei in 4S Ranch! As long as you omit the tofu that is. The consistency is still somewhat loose compared to legit Thai restaurants though.

The Boat Sushi & Thai Cuisine

I’m back at this trippy Asian eatery in El Segundo! First time ordering Pad Thai that I have NOT been asked how spicy on their scale of 1-5 or 1-10. Turns out nothing seems to come out spicy here. Had to request their side chile accoutrement thing and do it myself. It was still a very tasty Pad Thai with chicken.

Phuket Thai Restaurant

Tasty Pad Thai at Phuket (pronounced poo-ket) Thai in Redondo Beach! Even if they did leave out the crushed peanuts.

Pailin Thai Cafe

Still the best Pad Thai lunch special in SoCal! Especially prepared with the BBQ pork. Even the spicy Thai soup appetizer is tasty. If you’re ever in the Rancho Bernardo area, this place is well worth the visit!

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding garlic crab fried rice at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!

Thai Dishes

Kind of a trippy Thai restaurant in the El Segundo/Inglewood area called Thai Dishes. It reminds me of one other Thai place that I’ve been where I compared it to eating in a funeral home. The staff was just so depressing and lifeless. The Pad Thai was tasty and the decor sufficiently lively and tacky though.
