The restaurant formerly known as Thai Express on Inwood Road moved to Oak Lawn Avenue and reopened in late 2012 as the considerably swankier Si Lom. The subterranean location is easy to miss if you’re not looking for it (psst: it’s underneath the Goody Goody), but seek it out and you will be rewarded. A warmly decorated interior features white walls, bright orange booths, beaded chandeliers and the occasional Buddha statue or two. The food, of course, is the real draw, and all the Thai classics are well represented: green papaya salad, corn patties, chicken satay, fried rice with head-on shrimp, scallops and crab, plus half a dozen varieties of curries, from yellow to mussaman. There are also more inventive dishes like salmon with pumpkin cream sauce and mango salsa. A limited delivery area and online ordering ensure that even the laziest of Thai food enthusiasts can get their Si Lom on.
