People will invariably compare Thailand's Center Point to Sripraphai, given that the scrambling mass waiting for a table outside Sri can usually be seen from Center Point's doorstep only 200 feet away. Local Thais, however, treat TCP as the destination. Enter through the store selling Thai groceries and pop-culture paraphernalia to get to the dining area, where vintage-style lighting and tree-graphic walls are stylish enough to win over tourists from any borough. The Phin family are your hosts, whose commute to work is never a problem (they live upstairs). Mom cooks, Dad talks, and the three daughters are your waitstaff. In their menu of mostly Bangkok-style dishes, there are few ways to order regrettably. Aside from peaks like the crispy papaya salad and classic pad Thai, unique touches include tamarind fried rice, created by mother Phin, and the thief salad, which is essentially an "everything but the kitchen sink" dish created by her husband. Regulars keep an eye on the chalkboard wall of specials written in English and Thai; add that to a menu of exactly 100 items and there will always be new tastes to discover.
