Thai

Don’t let the exterior of this Downtown spot fool you: it’s bare-bones and a tad sketchy, but Thai Phooket is beloved by locals for its authentic Thai food, most of which can be modified to be entirely vegetarian. Drunken noodles and Pad Thai still reign supreme, but the light bites like the meatless papaya salad refresh and satisfy, along with the coconut milk-based red curry -- providing, of course, you’re able to take the heat (the spice level of these dishes can reach new heights, so brace your taste buds).
