Siam House

We’ve written about Thai food in this space before. DC is home to many mediocre overpriced Thai restaurants. It’s very easy to serve a passable Pad Thai. It’s not a very complex dish. But making really good, really fresh Thai food is more challenging. There’s fewer out of this world Thai restaurants out there. You have to wade through a lot of bad Tom Yum Soup to find the truly good places. Evan found one in Beau Thai. I’m going to tell today about one of my favorite, Cleveland Park’s Siam House.

The Morning Roundup

The Morning Roundup 5/30/2012

Good morning. Hopefully the rain holds off today and the sun rears its head today. We got a few deals for you, one that’s extra sweet. To the deals!

Must Buy: I’m a big believer in pie. I think it’s one of the better desserts. I’ll be blasphemous and say that I prefer pie to most chocolate desserts (Evan is somewhere yelling and acting incredulous). So today’s Scoutmob to Pie Sisters (3423 M St., NW) is an easy must buy. With a max $5 discount you can get two of their signature “cuppies” or personal sized pies.

The Morning Roundup 04/07/2012

Happy Saturday everyone. What you thought we wouldn’t hit you with the roundup on the weekend? Well here we are and we got deals for you. The weekend morning roundups may skew toward early afternoon roundups, but we’ll be bringing the freshest deals your way every weekend morning.

Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty: Groupon’s offering a $49 meal for two to The Wild Orchid Cafe. Four courses for $49. Now why isn’t this solely a must buy? The only reason is because it’s not the district (which is the point of this blog).

Beau Thai

I spent the first 18 years of my life in the middle of Long Island, where great pizza and Chinese food could be found in abundance but where Thai food options were slim. There was one Thai food restaurant I knew of anywhere close to my house, and if I ever ate there with family or friends, I can’t remember it. My sense of regret was enormous, then, when I moved to Boston for college and discovered just how freaking delicious Thai food is.  To atone for my mistakes, I’ve been spending the past 5 years making up for lost time and eating Thai food pretty much everywhere I can find it, and I can safely say that Beau Thai is one of the best places I’ve eaten.
