If you like Thai food,
Pin Kaow Thai Resturant, 1974 North Rainbow Blvd., 89108 They have opened two other locations, but I have only eaten here. http://www.pinkaowthai.com
Another Mexican restaurant that is not traditional, they market themselves as Modern Mexican is Cantino Laredo in the Tivoli Village - http://www.cantinalaredo.com
