Although it has one what must be one of the largest menus in Portland�cruise-colossal, in fact�the food here is always spanking fresh and artfully prepared. With six locations and counting chef/owner Bo Kline's Typhoon restaurants form a Pacific Northwest fleet of top-notch, inspired Thai food. It's daunting to choose from 20 appetizers and 150 teas, but you'll be happily rewarded once you do with items such as the tasty, bite-sized Menlo and seaweed-wrapped ahi paired with the curiously seductive jasmine-tea Manhattan. The interior design is spa-like sparse, with several cast Buddhist sculptures on the walls and a glowing bright-orange cast-glass bar. Most of the beauty here lies on the plate of the beholder, anyway. (LC)
