Char's is a little off the beaten path, but if you're looking for the mint, lemongrass and lime flavors of Thailand, it's worth heading over to Fifth Street for this long-time Best of Tucson winner. The dining room isn't likely to wow you, but there's magic happening back in the kitchen and sure, you could go with something off the Chinese menu, but why not live a little and try something new? The panang curry, in particular, shines but find something on the menu with lemongrass and enjoy one night in Bangkok (sorry if that song's in your head now).
