Renu Nakorn - Deliciousness in Norwalk, CA

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Last month, Pulitzer prize winning writer Jonathan Gold heralded the return of Renu Nakorn Thai Restaurant in Norwalk, California. I. Love. Thai. Food. I just had to try it.

I forgot to bring along Mr. Gold's recommendations, but my friends and I saw they had two pages of Northern Thai dishes so we wanted to get some of these specialties.

The finale. Mango with Sticky Rice. Always a favorite of mine, and their version is incredible. Sticky rice with coconut and sweet, ripe mango. Heaven. I had to break out my Canon macro lens to capture a close-up!

I came home and reread Mr. Gold's review - we didn't get any of his recommendations so we are definitely set to go back and try some more dishes off their extensive menu. If you are ever near the 5 and 605 freeways, stop by this excellent restaurant! (Also, the prices are very reasonable...all this food for $40!)
