You don’t expect to find this many varieties of southeast-Asian food less than two blocks from both a Gap and an H&M. Laut serves Thai, Malaysian, and Singaporean dishes, and we recommend trying something from one of the latter two groups. Get the laksa - it’s like if curry and ramen had a child, and it’s one of the great soups of the world. Or go with the rendang curry. Overall, Laut is about one step above the place where you get your weekly Thai delivery. It's a good place for a casual weeknight dinner, so if you’re in the area craving Thai or Malaysian, stop on in.
