THAI BASIL AURORA

2710 S. Havana St. thaibasilaurora.com • 303.369.8889 Lunch, dinner daily • $ Start with a chili lime edamame or satay chicken then take the route you prefer, the curries, the noodles or rice bowls. You can’t go wrong. For more traditional flavors, Thai Basil also offers Vietnamese rice noodle bowls as well some of the popular Chinese dishes. It could be good option for a couple’s night with its featured five-course meal for two including appetizer, soup, entrée, desert and beverage.

THAI FLAVOR

1014 S. Peoria St. • 720.859.7648 Lunch, dinner daily • Beer, wine • $$ The chunky curries, zesty salads and diverse stir-frys all have their fans at Thai Flavor, but it’s the noodle dishes that shine including the signature pad Thai loaded with fresh veggies. Order it less than “hot” to enjoy the spices and flavors. For those who like it fiery, start with the tom yum soup with galangal and catfish and move on to whole fish simmered in curry. Cool your mouth with sweet sticky rice with coconut milk and fresh mango.

THAI STREET FOOD

11650 Montview Blvd. • 303.587.2293 thaistreetfooddenver.com Lunch, dinner Tue.-Sat. • No alcohol • $$ Cash only Never order the wonderful Pad Kee Mao “Thai hot” or owner Utumporn Killoran will smile a little and melt your taste buds. Go for medium (of the eight grades of heat from baby spice to fire) so you can really taste the rice noodles wok-fried with vegetables, egg, rice wine, lots of shrimp and a few whole Thai peppers. You can also set the “juiciness” level from broth-y to almost dry. You will deeply appreciate (and need) that huge mug (and refills) of Thai iced tea. Thai Street Food is small, noisy and busy but it is often cited as the best Thai restaurant in the metro area.
