Thai Food In San Francisco

Kaisilver Lists Thai Cuisine In The San Francisco Area

Few visitors to Thailand forget the delicious Thai food that they have eaten during their vacation to the country. It is not suprising that the San Francisco area of the United States has a generous sprinkle of Thai food restaurants. Thai cuisine in San Francisco is available in a number of places, the choice is amazing. We have listed two full pages of Thai food outlets in SF, you should ofcourse check up with the place to ensure that it is open on the day and time that you wish to visit them.

Kaisilver the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, has a few recommendations to make when ordering thai cuisine. It is true that most of the Thai restraurants in the United States have their food moderated to suit the local taste. Some members of the Kaisilver crew, visited a few Thai restaurants in San Francisco and were impressed by the authentic flavor of the Thai food served at these places. We do not wish to make any specific recommendations related to the place, we will make general suggestions that will be useful for lovers of Thai food.

When you choose to order Thai food, always request for a moderately spiced dish. Favorite Thai dishes like the Tom Yum Kung, can be very very hot and fiery! You might be impressed by the large and rather mild chillies used in Thai cuisine but, most dishes combine the fine hot chillies with the larger less hot ones. Almost all the Thai food outlets in San Francisco have Thai food dishes with fish, pork, beef and prawns. If you have any specific preference, make sure that you explain this to the waiter or waitress. A very popular ingredient in many Thai cuisine recipes, is coconut milk and cream. These can be used in hot and spicey dishes and even in sweet desserts, fortunately most people do not mind coconut milk and cream in their food.

Most Thai restraunts in Thailand and overseas recommend spring rolls as appetizers or starters. These are generally prepared and kept ready and fried in the last minute as they get ordered. This ofcourse gives the cooks some more time to work on the main food that was ordered. While only few of the Kaisilver staff ate the Thai spring rolls in the Thai cuisine served at San Francisco, they have something important to tell you. The fried spring rolls come very hot (temperature) to the table. It is not uncommon for first time eaters to cut a spring roll into two and place a piece in their mouth. Beware, the filling inside the spring rolls can be very hot and can easily burn your tongue. To be on the safer side, cut the spring roll into two and leave the separated pieces for about 2 minutes before starting to eat them. Some Thai restaurants offer different fillings for spring rolls, you can make your choice and once again request for a modestly spicey filling.

We present a list of Thai cuisine outlets in the San Francisco area of the United States below, do remember that are not related to any of them and the list is provided by way of information only. Kaisilver has a customer base in San Francisco but, all jewelry is sold online and manufactured in Thailand.

If you are wondering where to find Thai food in the San Franciso area, the wide choice could easily confuse you. Most Thai restraunts in the U.S.A that have remained in business for 2 years or more, should be fine. The rents in San Francisco, are not cheap and less popular eating establishments would have put shutters down by now. If you see the list of Thai food restraunts shown above, the right most column gives the street name. This is useful since you might want to go to a place near your present location. The Clement street is where a fairly large number of Thai cuisine outlets are located in SF. The King of Thai Noodle seems to have a chain of Thai food outlets in San Francisco, the street names do give the idea that they are not very close to each other. Visiting a chain of food outlets under the same management can be interesting or boring, depending on how you look at it. You could expect each of these Thai restraunts under same ownership, to have a similar menu and similar flavor for the Thai cuisine that they cook. Some people might get easily bored with such a uniformity whereas others, might appreciate the fact that they are sure of what will be served and how the food would taste.

When you do find a restaurant, remember to request for a name card of the place. You might also want to ask the manager, if there are more Thai restaurants in San Francisco or the United States under the same management. Things that should keep you away from any Thai cuisine outlet is bad service, impolite staff, unclean conditions. We did not jump to list the food as one of the reasons because, most cooks can adjust and tune a Thai food recipe to suit your liking.

The Kaisilver team that visited San Francisco will not comment much on the prices of various Thai food outlets. Being from Thailand, they are aware that Thai food in the United States would be many times more expensive than back home!
