I’ve posted before that Noodle Boat in Issaquah serves some of the best Thai food in the Seattle area. The current special is called Rice ‘n Spicy, which seems like deconstructed fried rice. What made it extraordinary was saucy and spicy rice, likely a combination of nam pla and sweet soy sauce, with plenty of tongue-searing heat (I ordered it ‘hot’) from chile paste, mixed with protein of your choice (mine was chicken) and a fried egg. To add to the wonderful presentation, there were plenty of sliced fresh vegetables: green mango, red onion, green beans, cucumber and a lime wedge. Even if the sauce was a bit too sweet and chicken breast slices cooked dry, this was an outstanding dish (☆☆☆☆).
