Sripraphai in Woodside

POST #    1987

Last Friday, I headed out to Woodside with Jeannette and Yvan to Sripraphai (SEE-PAH-FYE). I had not been since last winter before they finished renovating part of the restaurant. Despite the finished renovation/expansion, the place was packed when we got there. For good reason too because Sripraphai is great. (It's not even owned by Chinese people!) The food is marvelous and occasionally knock-your-socks-off hot. We didn't even order hot, we just asked for slightly hot. Even with that degree of hotness, we were already enduring stomach pains and runny noses. Not that that's a bad thing.

Pictured above are the crispy Chinese watercress salad, green duck curry, drunken noodles with pork, sticky rice container, and the clams with basil and chili sauce. All of it was great. We determined he drunken noodles to be the hottest and that's without the addition of the sauce on the side.
