Just when you thought you were out, we pulled you back in. After spending nine months reviewing every Thai place that popped up around town, though I admittedly only made about half of them, there is a need to sum it all up. To give us closure and speak of this no more.
I wanted to follow the outline of a 'Best of,' but when I kept answering the questions there was only one restaurant that I felt was the best in any category you could designate.
The one exception to this is that I did eat one dish at every restaurant that offered it--which was every single one BUT Boda. I said in the review of Veranda that their Drunken Noodle with Chicken was my gold standard. I expected a challenger or two of this but found none of the other five restaurants compared, though Pom's got pretty close. So, Veranda remains my favorite and worth the trip around Baxter Boulevard to reach it.
