Thai Restaurant Names


I love Thailand. I've been there twice and I would go back in a minute. The temples, beaches, hill tribe villages, markets and the Thai people are incredible. But truth be told, I would go back just for the food.

Fortunately, Thai cuisine is popular in the US, and there are now many excellent Thai restaurants to choose from here at home. But the one thing that strikes me about Thai restaurants outside of Thailand is the funny, "punny" names. I've done a little research to prove my point. Please feel free to let me know if I've missed any of your favorites. And I promise I did not make even one of these names up!
