Ly Food Market is a valuable part of far west Oak Cliff, an establishment playing a triple role as jewelry counter, well-stocked southeast Asian grocery and casual spot to grab food from Laos and Thailand. The in-house kitchen has a pretty short menu of about a dozen items, including two appetizers and “Thai-style menudo,” all at bargain prices. Though the kitchen can make familiar classics like pad Thai, the owners have roots in Laos, which explains the presence of some less-common Laotian staples. Beef larb is a sort of national dish: finely shredded beef with spices and an awful lot of cilantro. Another Lao specialty is lad na, a meat-and-veggie noodle stir-fry served in a brown “gravy.” A good Lao appetizer is fried pork ribs. The more popular Thai dishes are good, too.
