We decided on good Thai for dinner last Sunday night in SF and a little quick research led me to Lers Roos in the Civic Center/Tenderloin area.
Sweet lord. This place is legit.
We started with two Thai iced teas and the papaya salad with blue crab, which was everything I’d hoped for. It was spicy and burned my mouth a little, but that was tempered by the coolness of the papaya. Delicious.
For our mains, we shared the crispy pork belly and an awesome spicy calamari dish. The crispy pork belly was amazing. I could eat it over and over again, though I return, I might go for one of the dishes featuring the less expected alligator, frog or quail. This place is off the hook, as the kids say.
In fact, it was so good that I ended up experiencing what BK refers to as “the itis.” I had to lie down for a little while when we returned to our hotel room. Ooops.
Lers Ros was also a good value. Four Thai iced teas, one appetizer and two mains cost us about $50, and we had plenty of leftovers to enjoy later on, once we’d recovered.
