Earl and Kham Daniel started up Lao-Thai Kitchen as a retirement project. Some retirement! This seven-day-a-week place is the ne plus ultra of mom-and-pop shops, with Kham in the kitchen and Earl charming the pants off the customers. The Daniels mostly serve your basic neighborhood Thai restaurant standards, but look out for Lao dishes like the larb, papaya salad, and barbecued pork with a sauce thatll take your breath away. Oh, yeah: Earls contribution to the menu is Southern-style barbecued ribs, greens, cornbread, and the mysteriously tasty white-potato pie.
