Viengthong may be hidden in a small strip-mall a block away from a major thoroughfare, but this cash-only hole-in-the-wall has garnered a loyal following who swear it's the best Thai around. There are Tom Yum soups and fresh salads, but fans swoon over the Lao-Thai specialties, particularly the barbecue chicken, which marinates in coconut milk, garlic, and black pepper before its charred to a lovely crisp. You'll be surrounded by plant life and trellises as you feast in the unfussy dining room.
