Readers of CNN Travel ranked Pad Thai, Thailand’s national dish since the 1930s and 40s, as one of world’s 50 most delicious foods*. Pad Thai served state side often fails to meet that assessment but Lanna Thai in Jupiter dishes up an outstanding version of this tasty rice noodle dish.

Their noodles are translucent thin and stir fried with shrimp, chicken and a dash of wonderful ingredients such
as tamarind, coriander and lime.  Plated with a garnish of ground peanuts, this Pad Thai holds top place in Lanna Thai’s most popular dishes.  We also dined on stir fried chicken atop a bed of fresh spinach cranked up to two and a half stars on the hot and spicy meter. Perfect. Their house-made vegetable and chicken dumplings are steamed in a thin dough that complements rather than hides the filling’s flavor. They were delicious even without the slightly thick, too sweet sauce they were served with.
Lanna Thai is a small eatery with about 12 tables. It’s a busy place during the season. Some snowbirds, no doubt, look forward to returning to the Juno-Jupiter area not not only because it’s warm in winter but also because of Lanna Thai.
