ABC Dining, Letter T: Thep Phanom

For letter T of Alphabet Dining, my dad and I ventured to Thep Phanom, the adorable and delicious Thai restaurant in the Lower Haight. 

Tom Kha Pak - Assorted Vegetables in Coconut Soup

We began with the Tom Kha Pak, a delicious, warm coconut soup with assorted veggies! There's a distinct lemon-citrus twist to this dish, which gives it a light, fruity flavor to go well with the creamy coconut soup. 

Crispy Tofu with Peanut Sauce and Cucumber Salad

Forever a tofu fiend, I ordered the Crispy Tofu in peanut sauce, with a cucumber salad. The tofu was perfectly cooked - crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with sweet peanut sauce for some great protein and flavor. The cucumber salad served as a refreshing crunch to offset the soft tofu texture.

Basil Salmon - Broiled Filet of Salmon in Spicy Basil Sauce 

My dad ordered the Basil Salmon, with broiled filet of salmon in a spicy basil sauce. He enjoyed the kick of the spicy sauce, which complimented the blander salmon.


Espresso & Ice Cream

For a post-dinner treat, my dad ordered the espresso and vanilla ice cream, which came served in this darling cocktail glass and topped with mint

Caramelized Fried Banana, Ice Cream, & Fruits

For my dessert, I opted for the Caramelized Fried Banana, which came complete with vanilla ice cream, kiwis, strawberries, raspberries, and a topping of mint. It was sweet and amazing! I definitely recommend Thep Phanom to anyone in the mood for Thai in SF.

  1. Hi Chelsea, I am so lame that I am just now looking through comments on foodhoe, sorry it took me 6 months to respond... This used to be my favorite thai restaurant when I lived in the city many many moons ago.
