WaPo’s Tom Sietsema and Washingtonian’s Todd Kliman both gave shout-outs to Wheaton’s Ruan Thai in their respective chats today and yesterday. “Delicious Thai cooking, and about as divey as a good restaurant gets,” says Kliman. Ruan (11407 Amherst) is all about substance not style, too true. Sietsema recomments the fried watercress, tom kha gai, and stir-fried pork belly with Chinese broccoli. No mention of kaprow but I’m sure that’s an honest oversight.
