Sawaddee Thai Restaurant

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  March 17, 2010

Tarra had nam sod ($9.25), on the menu under "Northeast Style (Hot & Sour)." Sliced chicken is tossed with onions and scallions, sprinkled with roasted peanuts, and tang-ified with lime juice, ginger, and chili. Simple and good. Also in that category was something that her friend Feyi leapt to, calamari ($10.95). Poached rather than fried, tossed with onions and scallions, zinged-up with chili paste and both lemongrass and lime juice, its sauce was as delicious as mine.

Johnnie's kai-yang ($8.95), garlic-marinated pieces of bone-in chicken, was slightly hot with white pepper and quite delicious, especially when complemented with a shredded green papaya salad in the deluxe version ($10.95), which also came with sticky rice. (With these dishes, rice is $1.50.)

Dessert? We didn't have room for dessert, but there are 10 choices, from lychee nuts to green tea ice cream. Enjoy.

    The knockout production avoids digressions and keeps the interplay punchy, leaving us reeling as well. Think ' Crossfire' on the History Channel.
