LOCATION: Spice I Am, 90 Wentworth Avenue (corner of Campbell Street and Elizabeth Street), Surry Hills, Sydney
CATEGORY: Thai
DRINK: Fresh young coconut juice
WE THINK: No doubt the best Thai food we've had in Sydney and among the best and most authentic we've had outside of Thailand. We took advantage of our large party and ordered a mountain of food from the enticing menu. The highlights were the Nham Khao Tod, the almost-as-spicy-as-in-Thailand Yum woon saen, the lemongrass salad and the delicious Pad Prik King crispy fish (the latter two of which we ordered an extra serving). We went back the next day for an encore, but unfortunately Spice I Am is closed on Mondays.
OUR TIP:  Go to Spice I Am at lunchtime if you wish to avoid the overwhelming queue that otherwise forms outside. Order the divine young coconut juice or bring your own booze at no extra charge.
