Pongsri Thailand Restaurant Restaurant Review

: You haven't had hot until you've tried Pongsri. The shrimp cooked in lime juice was so spicy it brought tears to our eyes, as did a sautéed chicken with a good, thick peanut sauce. Those with a tender palate should stick to tom kah kai, the classic chicken-coconut-milk soup. Prices are inexpensive, and at lunch, the place is packed with lawyers and jurors from the nearby courthouses.
