Dee Dee

The Dee Dee Northern Thai trailer is a family affair. Lakana Trubiana kicks out the jams in the back while husband Justin helps customers navigate the entrées at the order window. Their om gai – a spicy, brothy, dill-laden chicken dish – is perfect for sweating out a hangover, and the damn good tofu stir-fry is far from a vegetarian afterthought. Sharable boats of mango sticky rice and papaya salad round out the limited offerings, but we couldn’t ask for anything more.
