You can always tell a great Thai joint by its peanut sauce. And this popular Portland State University hangout doesn't disappoint, with a version you'd be just as happy to eat alone with a soup spoon or poured on a vast selection of curries, stir-fries and regional specialties. For real flavor, opt for the Thai Jungle ($8.50-$12.50), a generous plate of steamed veggies and meat in an avalanche of nutty goodness. Fresh salad rolls ($4) offer tightly bundled vegetables, while the som tum salad ($8) delivers a lip-tingly blend of papaya, chilies, dried shrimp and lime. (CM)
