During a recent visit to Alexandria, looking for a casual-dress (jeans) non-mortgage-causing restaurant for a casual meal, we asked a friend who works and eats daily along Alexandria's King Street for a recommendation. With no hesitation, Sam Phao is where he sent us. Turns out our friend eats lunch here almost every day, so he knew the food. Sam Phao is a tiny, little place. The decor is anything but memorable. But since you're not here to eat the walls, you'll find straight-up good Thai food at prices that are very reasonable. I had the pineapple chicken -- tasty, very enjoyable, served in a hollowed-out pineapple half. At this point, I don't remember what the other two diners had, but their selections were enjoyed, as well. Bottom line, for a come-as-you-are setting, good Thai food at very reasonable prices, give Sam Phao's a try!
