Lao Restaurant Lovers: To the Excelsior!

A new combination Lao-Thai restaurant opened in the Excelsior on New Year's Day, and 'hounds are on it. Chowhound member soupçon drops the word that Maneelap Srimongkoun Restaurant serves a satisfying khao poon (spicy vermicelli soup) along with other Laotian standards like Lao sausage and the crispy rice ball dish called nam kao tod. No reports yet on the Thai side of the menu.
