What else should I look out for where you live?
There's a Taiwanese restaurant in our 'hood; no place mats, no pagodas, no Buddhas. Just clean tables and minimal decoration. The food is superb and authentic.

Thai/Laotian: if you can see a native granny wielding a wok in the kitchen, you're golden.
