    Well, we have our Chinese thread, and according to our lunch thread, there's a ton of Thai food fans. I am one of them; I am addicted. I honestly go to my local Thai restaurant -- called "Thai Spice" -- at least once a week. They ask about me when I'm not there. And I no longer have to order, they know what I want -- they just have to ask which of my favorite dishes I want.

    What do you usually get?

    I get chicken Thai fried rice (which at this place is HEAVENLY) or pad see ew with Thai iced tea. On weekdays, you get free chicken coconut soup which is amazing.

    Pahd see ew, chicken, no veg, extra spicy (4 stars out of 4). That's all I need, aside from something to wash it down with (water or Coke).

    Beef thai fried rice. Yummy.

    Damn, now I want some, and I'll have to wait until at least Monday to get it from my favorite spot near work.

    I start with Tom Yum (medium spicey) soup with shrimp. Then I usually have beef sate (with peanut sauce) and shrimp fried rice.

    I don't usually drink the Thai Iced Tea, but it is good.

    Pretty much every Thai dish is good. ;) I go with whatever sounds good at the time, and I'm always willing to try something new, and so I'd never have a "regular" order anyway. Never.

    I rarely order the same dish at a restaurant twice unless I've tried everything on the menu that sounds appetizing to me. After that, I just order whatever I want, but not the same thing I had last time.

    Last time, I had Penang chicken curry, Tom Yum soup with prawns, some sort of dish with mussels and basil (incredible!), and several other dishes I forget.

    I like Penaeng if it can be made with tofu and also Gaeng Keow Wan Gai if it can be made without meat. Spring rolls are good too, although I think my fav are Vietnamese ones.....

    Pad Thai. That's it. If I'm splurging, I might get it with shrimp.

    Although, last time I went, we got this green bean (or was it asparagus) thing that was dipped in batter then deep fried, then sauteed in this delicious spicy sauce. I haven't ever seen it before. I'll be getting that with my next time trip (it is an appetizer thing).

    As always, wash it down with water. (yes, I'm boring)

    My girlfriend is Thai, and used to own her own restaurant, so I'm set when it comes to Thai food :)

    My favourite: vegetarian massaman, with potato's and tofu, and a healthy helping of cashew nuts :)

    I actually can't remember that I've ever tried massaman curry. I might have though. I should again. Sounds yum. :)

    I rarely go to Thai restaurant. But I'm Thai, so it's easy enough just to cook my own. ;)

    My favourite dish is Satay.
