Pailin has been run by a Northern Thai family for a couple decades and is serving what is probably the best (and cheapest) Northern Thai menu in the city: wildly good spiced larb, funky Northern versions of the popular som tum papaya salad, another great curry noodle served on the street called kanom jeen, a terrific take on a Southeast Asian soup called kway chap. Pailin’s rendition of khao soi was a wonderful discovery, reminiscent, with a few minor issues, of what you would find in Chiang Mai: just spicy enough, not too sweet, neither too thin nor too thick, accompanied by a small plate of pickled mustard, raw shallot and lime. —James Gordon
