Meet Songkarn Joongjit (left) and Sriphrai Thongurai (right). They both work at Thai Village Restaurant in Pleasant Hill. They are also best friends who have known each other for 11 years. They say the most popular dish people order at Thai Village is Pad Thai. The most popular dessert is sticky rice with mango.
How would you describe your friend?
Songkarn She is adventurous, fun, and helps me a lot. When we first met, I couldn't drive and she drove me everywhere.
Sriphrai She is fun and laughs a lot. She can be very serious and has high expectations.
What do you like to do for fun?
Songkarn I like to go shopping at Sunvalley Mall and in Walnut Creek. I also like to work out at the Lafayette Reservoir.
Sriphrai I like to golf and go hiking. I also like to go to the Thai temple and have lunch with friends.
What do you like to eat at home?
Songkarn Spicy Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles) and Seafood Salad (Yum Talay).
Sriphrai Spicy Papaya Salad and Glass Noodle Salad (Ya Mun Sen). I like to make the noodle salad when I want to diet because it's low in carbohydrates.
