Pad See Ew

The Bay Area is home to many great restaurants and food outlets, including excellent Thai cuisine. Since moving to Kansas City, I've been on the lookout for good Thai. I generally first try pad see ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว), a noodle dish made with dark soy sauce, broccoli, egg, and tofu, setting a baseline for comparison. Thus far I'd say I'm partial to Spices, a restaurant whose strip mall location I stumbled across accompanying a friend to the iPhone repair store a couple of doors down.

Extra: Driving north along the California coast from San Diego to the Bay Area I stopped for lunch in Lompoc, a smallish city just outside Vandenberg Air Force Base. I had to the restaurant once before, having arrived in town late at night and finding the non-chain location near the hotel we had selected for the night. The restaurant is basic and limited to counter service but the food is tasty.

The cheese selection at the Fred Meyer on Seward Highway in Anchorage, Alaska has a much better cheese selection that the local grocery stores back home.
