New in Scottsdale: Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery

​A Bay Area Thai restaurant just opened a new location at Scottsdale's Shops at Gainey Village, and there's already favorable early buzz from a couple of my favorite food spies.

Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery has a sister restaurant in Oakland, California, along with three other Thai spots run by the Sirimonkolvit family in Berkeley and San Francisco.

From what I've heard, Soi 4 distinguishes itself with contemporary Thai food, not the typical homestyle dishes you find at most Valley Thai restaurants.

The menu has a variety of small plates (wraps, rolls, and dumplings, mostly), skewers of meat and seafood, noodle and stir-fry dishes, and curries.

Stir-fried duck breast with lychee and snap peas in red curry ginger sauce sounds good to me, as does pan-roasted wild salmon and oyster mushrooms in basil, chili, and crackling peppercorn sauce.

Soi 4 is located at 8787 N. Scottsdale Rd. Call 480-778-1999 for info.

Really quite excellent food here and not your typical Americanized offerings. Check out the menu for the Oakland location, the Scottsdale store has similar preparations.

Contemporary, great. Homestyle Americanized, great. Is anybody doing hardcore authentic regional?
