Escape the crowds on La Jolla's busy shopping street and duck into the serene sidewalk patio with dozens of orchids in tiny bamboo baskets on the walls. The fragrance of lemongrass and curry tantalizes tastebuds with a sense of what's to come—excellently prepared standards including a slightly tangy lime-dressed grilled beef salad and perfect pad Thai. Several sautéed veggie dishes and curries start at a sensible $11.95, with add-ons including beef, chicken, tofu and shrimp upping the bill a dollar or two. Signature fried rice paper "gold bags" filled with finely chopped meats and veggies set the stage for delicious dinners of panang curry duck and spicy seafood with chili-garlic paste.
