This vegan Thai restaurant draws fans from all over town to an unassuming stretch of Lincoln Blvd for vibrant dishes such as endive cups filled with cashew ‘tuna’, coconut, ginger, lemongrass, peanuts and more; green papaya or snap pea salads; beet-dyed noodles; and eggplant served catfish-style in curry paste. The vibe is comfy, contemporary and friendly.
