Bangkok Spice is a Thai restaurant in Anaheim. The menu is in the higher echelons of OC Thai fare—all the pineapple fried rice, pad Thais and yellow/red/green curries local eaters have assimilated, as well as next-level challenges such as green papaya salad (refreshing on all spice levels, but best when the heat blasts through your sinuses), larbs (juicy chicken minced so fine it’s a miracle the South Coast Air Quality Management District hasn’t demanded eaters consume it with a filter), and a sweet massamun curry heavy on the peanuts. You’ll have to dig deep into the menu—and you’ll have fun, as all of Bangkok Spice’s dishes come in big portions and nuanced, well-balanced flavors—to find the one regional specialty: Chu Chee Surprise, a red curry spiked with kaffir lime leaves and basil.
