Ever have one of those moments when someone tells you about their favorite neighborhood restaurant and once it gets in your head, you discover that tons of people you know adore it? I’m not talking about the hip, new, well-publicized eateries that explode on the food scene week after week. I’m talking about those stalwarts that are under the radar, with a loyal following that doesn’t trend-hop. Supannee House of Thai was that for me. As I got to know the restaurant and owner Supannee House, I made it my neighborhood restaurant, even though I live in an altogether different part of town. It was a place that my dad, who has Alzheimer's and Lewy Body diseases, absolutely loved. So in my latest San Diego Union-Tribune food story I wanted to share the special approach she takes with her native cuisine with readers. Supannee may create Thai food, but each dish is crafted with local ingredients, including produce she and her sister, Chef Wan Chant, grow in their own gardens, and local seafood.
