San Diego Hillcrest: Taste of Thai

Let's Eat by Kitty Kaufman

What a great location: right on University Avenue in the Hillcrest section, steps from Whole Foods and a hundred other places to eat and drink. At Taste of Thai you'll find white tablecloths with service to match. If you're reading this before the end of May, there's a 20% coupon for both the Hillcrest and Del Mar locations good for 20% off lunch or dinner when you dine in.

Michele recommends the yellow curry with tofu; The Thin Man went for the grilled Thai chicken with sweet and sour sauce; and the prosaic but tasty chicken with broccoli in oyster sauce, yes, that was me. They also serve the coldest beer.

Appetizers: wings, fried tofu, tod mun, mee krob, calamari. Salads: larb, Thai sausage, som tum: green papaya with dried shrimp; and yum nuah which is grilled steak, chili, lime and mint. Entrees include your choice with a variety of sauces and vegetables. Curries: red, yellow, green, choochi and panang.

Lunch specials weekdays till 3 come with soup, salad, spring roll and fried wonton. Lunch: fried rice any way you want it, noodles ditto, colorful curries, basil hot and sweet.

Taste of Thai honors vegetarian requests. Park on the street. Since 1989 with gold medallions from the San Diego Restaurant Association; Best Thai from San Diego magazine starting in 1995 and others.
