You need to eat at Lulu’s.
That’s not an overstatement by any stretch – it’s just a simple fact of life. If you’ve been there you understand; if you haven’t you need to experience it. It’s the best Thai food you’ll get short of going to, say, Thailand (and even then I hear it can compete…OK, maybe I didn’t really hear that).
I had the Pad Thai tonight. It took me several minutes to figure out what I wanted, not because the menu is large (it’s a reasonable size; plenty of options) but because it all sounded good. “Green cabbage, scallions, egg, bean sprouts, peanuts, tofu and thin rice noodles in a sweet and tangy sauce [Khun Ma Pad Thai]“? Absolutely – that’s what I’m getting. Oh, wait – maybe I’ll go “Chinese broccoli, green and red bell peppers, Thai basil, peanuts, bean sprouts, scallions, lemongrass, and egg wok-tossed with wide rice noodles [Drunken Noodles]” instead. Oh, but what about “Chicken, carrots, snow peas, cilantro, lemongrass, galanga, kaffir lime and coconut milk broth [Tom Kha Gai]“?
While not all of the items sounded as appetizing as the rest there certainly isn’t a shortage of opportunities to try new stuff.
If you’re ever downtown and need some good food, stop it an Lulu’s. They’ll treat you well and send you home stuffed.by
