Lum-Ka-Naad

In a cheery Valley storefront, husband-and-wife owners Alex and Ooi Sonbalee create dishes inspired by their respective hometowns—hers use the acerbic flavors of southern Thailand, his the mellower notes of the north. Mammoth dishes average $7 and include favorites like the nam prik noom dip served with a dramatic display of vegetables, the kanom jean curry noodles, and South Sea Spice Curry.
