Thai 99

2210 Fontaine Ave.

Lime Leaf Thai
Rio Hill Shopping Center

Here’s a tip: Traditionally in Thai culture, the left hand is not used for eating. Hold your spoon in the right hand and a fork in the left, using the fork only to rake food into the spoon. Of course, for Pad Thai, you should use chopsticks—they’re reserved for noodle dishes and spring rolls. It’s hard to resist just shoveling the meal in your mouth though, especially at this year’s top choices. The winner takes the lead with 14 years of service at Fontaine Avenue. Lime Leaf, in Rio Hill Shopping Center, takes the No. 2 spot.
