Don't be deterred by how quiet Your Place is, or how Americanized the name is. Your Place isn't a fancy spot by any means, but it's clean, simple, and fresh. For vegetarians and vegans, the segregated menu is wonderful, and upon request, nearly any dish can be made meatless. Try the special pumpkin curry; it's spicy with a hint of sweetness. And the Pad Kee Mao is a basil lover's dream come true. Actually, order anything with basil, and you'll be a happy customer. If you have a spice-sensitive palette, be explicit with your requirements because this is the real thing. If you try Your Place it will turn into your place, for its authentic taste, college-student affordability, and friendly staff.
