Watch the No. 7 el rush by ablaze with light at this working-class canteen, for years the only authentic Thai restaurant in town, and the one we will always respect for teaching us how good Thai can be. At Sripraphai in Woodside, expect fiery curries, eggplants that look like miniature watermelons, and cases full of snack food. Our fave: catfish in spicy sauce.
