Pawit's Royale Thai

How I love Thai food! And amidst all the construction and demolition of most stores, restaurants, and malls in our neighborhood, at least we've got Pawit's -- consistently rated a top Thai restaurant in Salt Lake -- great food, ambiance and service -- and all right down the street. Only problem is I never remember what we order so I don't know what our favorite dishes are and if we're trying something new or something we've already had. We ate there last night with friends and had THE BEST coconut soup! I had to stop myself twice from picking up my bowl and lapping up what my spoon couldn't get. Seriously.

Thought I'd list what we ordered so next time I'll remember...
Tom Kha -- A complex coconut soup with mushrooms, cabbage, kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, galangal garnished with cilantro.
Pad Thai (of course)
Kaow Pad-- Stir-fried steamed jasmine rice with egg, meat, onions, green peas, scallions, and soy sauce. Topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, and cilantro.
Gang Kra Lee -- Mild yellow curry with coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves, potatoes, carrots, and onions.
Pad Gra Prow -- One of Pawit’s favorites. Stir-fried meat, garlic, Thai green bans, onions, red andgreen bell peppers, spicy Thai chilies, and Thai basil.
Pad Kee Mao -- Drunken stir-fried meat with garlic, broccoli, red and green bell peppers, mushrooms,carrots, spicy Thai chilies, and Thai basil

Otherwise known as S2, N1, N7, C1, D2, D4

Thanks for the pointers! We have been there several times, but have only fallen in love with the pad tai. Now I know what else to try. The soup sounds amazing!

I'll have to try it when we come this summer. We LOVE thai food. Kee mao is always good. Our thai place makes great red curry, so, along with phad thai we always get that. Also good is green curry, and phad prik pow. Thanks for the recommendation!

We ate there when they opened. The owner personally suggested what we should eat. We loved every bit of it, but were surprised when we got the bill. We had a lot of leftovers!
