Despite its large size, International District’s Tamarind Tree has a cozy, romantic atmosphere. It’s good for date nights, friend nights, and birthday parties. My friend Mari will not leave until she has the fresh Tamarind Tree tofu roll stuffed with herbs, roasted peanut, fresh coconut, jicama, and carrots. Also a must: the green mango salad served with grilled prawns, the okra lemongrass satay, and the stuffed squid—packed with minced, marinated pork and black mushrooms. The portions are large and the prices are right, which might explain why Tamarind Tree has weathered several foodie storms. TRICIA ROMANO
