Rang Nam has become more and more popular with western and Japanese expats, so that explains why the carved wood sign in front of this Thai and Isaan restaurant is in Thai, Japanese, and English. That doesn’t mean the food here isn’t authentic, though.
Larb is a minced meat salad with mint that perhaps tastes than it sounds. Other Isaan (also spelled Esarn) or northeastern Thai dishes are served here, too: marinated grilled chicken and different kinds of somtum. Sticky rice should be eaten with all of these. Thai Esarn also makes a nice tom yum goong and tom kha gai: both of these soups are purportedly good for your health.
One long wall to the street is wide open, making this an ideal people-watching location.
