Best Thai Food in Saint Paul

Posted on 12 / 06 / 2014

That's what I was told when I moved here a little over a year ago, at least - and they may have been right. My first time there, I ordered a green curry with seitan and it was amazing. After trying a few other Thai places in the area that have vegetarian options, Ruam Mit is still my favorite. Not only that - when they ask if you want your food hot-spicy, they mean it, which I love.

Pros: Delicious, Really spicy - if you want it that way, Clean interior, friendly staff

Very good Thai food.

This is authentic Thai, so keep in mind medium spicy has significant kick. They don't have dedicated vegetarian frying containers, so anything such as egg rolls, or tofu which has been fried is not vegetarian. Luckily, they do have mock duck, which they will always substitute.

My favorite dish is their #30 Pha Ram Long Song - coconut milk, mock duck, and crushed peanuts on a bed of spinach. You must order it with a simple green curry substitution instead of red curry to make it vegetarian as their red curry has shrimp paste. Wait staff and cooks are not always willing to do this, however. Their #29 Pad Keow Waan green curry with mock duck and basil is also very good.

For dessert, sticky rice with Durian is very good.

Pros: Excellent food
Cons: Won't always accomodate vegan changes
