Two For The Price Of Yum


Pakpao Thai
1628 Oak Lawn Ave

The last time you tried to cook with your boyfriend, the only result was a heated debate about how to cut a spaghetti squash which ended in you pouting your way to the delivery menu drawer.

Turn to a duo that does it right. The husband-and-wife team behind brand new Pakpao (the creators of much-loved Oak next door) bring fresh and authentic Thai fare with unique creations like fried cashew and braised pork belly with cinnamon. Clad with crisp white kites (translating to "pakpao") handmade by an artisan in Thailand, the sleek Design District restaurant stays true to its zip code.

Sometimes it takes Thai to tango.
