Having earned herself a loyal following at Bangkok Golden in Falls Church, Chef Seng Luangrath is set to wow the crowds in ever-transforming Columbia Heights. Thip Khao's menu tempts with its sheer variety, from snacks and salads to soups, curries, and a panoply of entrées. Naem khao, a crispy coconut rice salad, bursts with fresh and fragrant flavor, while muu som, cured and slow-cooked pork belly, is wonderfully fatty. The gang deng is delicious, its mildly spicy red chili curry dotted with tender chunks of tofu and crunchy vegetables, but it's the knap paa or Chilean sea bass that really stands out. Brushed with curry paste and coconut cream, then grilled in a banana leaf, you'll find yourself wondering: is it dinner or a present?
