Editorial Review of Thai Spice

Located just down the street from Uncommon Ground on Devon, Thai Spice offers something truly uncommon with its spicy regional fare and kitschy interior. Loyal patrons often refer to the place as "the comfort cuisine of Thai," and that description couldn't be more accurate in both the restaurant's dishes and its inviting atmosphere.

The husband-and-wife team behind the whole shebang manages everything from front of house to the food in the kitchen. The culinary duo also invites patrons to bring their own booze, which makes the restaurant's higher-than-average price point a bit more forgiving ($10-$15 per entree). Appetizers still skirt the cheaper side of things and offer filling options like chicken potstickers with veggies and spring rolls with tofu, egg, green onion and plum sauce. But splurging on Thai Spice's entrees is worth it, especially since the portion sizes are so generous.

Expect plenty of regional fare like pad Thai with your choice of chicken, beef or pork and lard nar with veggies and thick soy sauce. Other favorites include the basil fried rice (served hot or mild) and the classic curry fried rice. Vegetarians will be pleased with the extensive list of meat-free dishes, including curry with stir-fried veggies and tofu and the pad Thai served tofu-style.

Average cost: <$10
