The couple that runs Rainbow, Pramote Rukprueksachart (the husband) and Wanpen Phosawang (the wife), immigrated from Thailand about 12 years ago and got food-service jobs, him as a delivery driver and her as a sous chef at Spoon Thai, the unassuming two-star spot just two blocks down Western, starting their legacy of authentic northern Thai cuisine in the city.

Devoted Spooners will recognize the style at Rainbow, including the fermented sausage balls called i-san and Vo's recommendation, the papaya salad. The highest price on the menu is $10.95, and it's BYO in the 12- to 15-seat eat-in space.
