Bangkok Noodles & Thai B.B.Q. 110 Powell St., 2 blks. to Union Square, (415) 397-2199. Cash only. Daily 11am-1am; $. You can observe the kitchen in action through a window from the sidewalk before you enter this little hole in the wall, which serves up delicious noodles and rice plates. My favorites are #S4 Udon Pad Se-lew—stir fried fat udon noodles with Chinese broccoli, black bean sauce, and really good white-meat chicken—and #20 Pra-Ram Long Srong—chewy flat rice noodles topped with spicy peanut sauce. Next time I’ll try #26 Khao Pad Ped—fried rice with roast duck, and #S7 Udon Pad Tom Yum—udon noodles with yummy Tom Yum sauce and shrimp. #45 Tom Kha Gai—chicken-mushroom-coconut soup--and #18 Pad Thai—the classic rice noodle with shrimp dish—are also on my radar. Condiments are on the table to fine-tune the kick.
