Description

The proprietors of this spotless Roosevelt refuge are Lao, but much of the menu is Thai—some of the best in town in fact. It can be hard to tell where one cuisine ends and the other begins, but Laotian dishes tend to be earthier and less sweet, notably a pungent, shrimp-paste-infused version of shredded green papaya salad. Also to try: gai yang, curried game hen, and toam kaim moo, stewed pork in sweet soy sauce with veggies and boiled eggs, sister to classic Vietnamese thit heo kho. And a tip: the V is pronounced like a B in Savatdee, Laotian for "hello."
