Bird & Buffalo Thai Soul Food - Oakland Temescal


New Thai restaurant in the old Rosamunde space. Order and pay at the counter and take a number to your table.

Sai ouah / Lao sausage ($7): excellent, juicy, nicely seasoned. Some of the best I’ve had. I ordered the nham prik noom, but they didn’t have enough left, so they threw in the last little bit they had left.

Mu ping / pork skewer ($4): very nice, simple, juicy, good texture.

Somtum lao ($9): very good. I ordered Thai spicy, pretty mild compared with the stuff at Wat Mongkolratanaram.

Gra duk mu yaang / pork ribs ($11), simple and good, nice with their fermented chile sauce. Slaw was too sweet for my taste, though also quite sour.

Forgot to take a picture of the blistered garlic green beans ($5), simple and good.

I’ll definitely be back to try more of the menu. It’s nice to have a place doing real Thai food closer to home.
