Most mentions – Baan Siam – Credit-their IG https://www.instagram.com/p/CALxEMDh7TK/

Next in the series of Barred in DC food guides is where to find the best Thai food  in DC. Like almost all of these guides, this is generated from an open Twitter thread. They are based on what my Twitter followers believe is the best Thai food in the District of Columbia proper rather than my personal experience, as I’ve not had all them. [Update: I switched up the ordering  a bit
