Pad Kee Mao at Thai House

This unheralded restaurant in the far corner of a shopping mall off Silverado Ranch Boulevard would have a national fan base if it were near the Strip.

Pad kee mao is a huge pile of rice noodles sautéed with your choice of meats—chicken, beef, pork or shrimp—plus egg, scallion, Thai chili and black soy sauce. The noodles get browned edges, and a wonderful condiment tray is brought as an accompaniment. Pay close attention to those deadly, cylindrical green chilies.

Thomas Keller’s signature appetizer comes in a glass jar, available for retail purchase and home indulgence. Spread the rillettes onto crisp rusks made from house baguettes. It’s an unbeatable combo. $17.50 for 5 ounces, in the Venetian, 414-6200, BouchonBistro.com.
