Toom’s Restaurant

In this little out-of-the-way treasure, you’ll first notice the immaculate, cheery décor, and then the aroma of fragrant spices like basil and garlic will get your appetite stirring.

Yes, there are plenty of Americanized versions of traditional Thai dishes on the menu (like chicken fried rice, pictured above), but we suggest stepping out of your comfort zone to try Toom’s excellent Lao food – you won’t regret it.

Be prepared for some of the spiciest entrées in town – Lao food packs a punch – like classic larb, beef jerky, chicken wings and spicy catfish. Cool your palate with creamy and refreshing pumpkin coconut custard for dessert.

3416 NE 24th Ave., 381.2568

Open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
