Kids and hobbyists gravitate toward the miniaturized Grand Prix racetrack that fills the back room while hungry diners dig into chef Arista Saengchan’s homestyle Thai cuisine up front. Saengchan’s “country-style” Thai cooking isn’t especially fancy or challenging to the Western palate, but it is abundant with herbs and aromatics, everything well-executed and freshly prepared. The papaya salad impresses with bright flavors while the herbaceous off-menu rice soup is the perfect “sick person’s food,” especially if you’re a cilantro lover. For something unique, try the spicy Thai-style burger, the kind of East-West mash-up you might imagine pulling off the grill at some Thai-American family’s backyard barbecue. Don’t forget to check out the slot-car racing in back — $5 buys fifteen minutes of an unconscionable amount of fun.
