Excellent Pad Thai Noodle at Jetta Thai in quirky downtown El Segundo!
First time visiting a Lazy Dog restaurant and I was really impressed. Inside, the atmosphere is absolutely stunning with great service to match. The menu is quite expansive, satisfying most any taste. I ordered the “Thai Noodles”. Kind of like a Pad Thai. Made with shrimp, ground chicken, tofu (omitted), peanuts, stir-fried egg, bean sprouts and a peanut sauce. Although not spicy enough it was still a solid dish for a chain restaurant. Looking forward to returning and trying something else.
One of the best places for lunch specials in Rancho Bernardo is Charm Thai Kitchen. And not just my favorite for Thai food, but an all around great restaurant. It also helps that they’re in a shopping center with one of the least jacked up parking lots in RB during the lunch rush. My favorite thing to order at CTK is the Pad Thai. They always make it with the perfect balance of sweet, sour and spicy!
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!
After the terrible pad thai at Lemongrass, I promised to go back and try a curry dish – I’m glad I did! I got the Lunch Special Yellow Curry (with chicken) for only $6.95. There’s a fair amount of chicken in a rich, flavorful and savory coconut milk broth with yellow curry paste, onions, carrots and potatoes. There was a lot more chicken than potatoes which I appreciated! Served with a side of rice and soup to start. Did not care for today’s soup though. Some sort of bland egg drop loaded with a ton of corn! At least it came out hot… This was a really good curry dish that I would come back and order again.
Outstanding Pad Thai at Panya. And so beautifully presented as well in lunch special form. Very much like what I get at Pailin Thai. I think these restaurants might be run by the same owner. Very similar menu too.
My favorite lunch special Panang Curry! I like how Pailin serves this all on one dish. Typically the curry lunch specials are segregated into distinct dishes roughly the size of a large ashtray. Eating here saves the headache of coalescing everything on the plate.
