Take off your shoes and loosen your belt as you enter this Beaverton Thai gem for some indulgent dishes that won't break the bank. The delectable emerald garlic with shrimp ($7.50) has sautéed shrimp and perfectly cooked broccoli bathed in a sauce of marinated garlic and spices, while the cuisine's benchmark pad Thai ($6.50 lunch, $8.50 dinner) delivers both flavor and crunch courtesy of extra bean sprouts, carrots and peanut. Add a Thai iced tea ($1.50) and say Phuket to work and take the rest of the day off. (TD)
