Is the two-block stretch of Larkin St. known as “Little Saigon” about to become “Little Bangkok”?
Lers Ros’s Tom Narupon Silargorn’s long anticpated The Esan Classic received its liquor license on August 9 and appears to be apout to open at 739-743 Larkin St.
Meanwhile, his Lers Ros partner (and Lers Ros’ Princiapal Owner) Pitsanu Sanguansatya just quietly opened Pak Nam Thai in the space vacated by Vietnamese restaurant Pagolac, 655 Larkin St.
Meanwhile, another once-popular Vietnamese restaurant, Mangosteen, has given way to another new Thai entry, Lapat’s Thai Noodle (601 Larkin St.). It doesn’t have Lers Ros cred, but early reports is that it’s not your father’s Pad Thai Palace, either.
