Golden Triangle Friday Harbor

Thai Restaurants are always near the top of the list of things to check out in a new town.

If you're like me, Thai Restaurants are always near the top of the list of things to check out in a new town. Fortunately, San Juan Island has one worth checking out -- The Golden Triangle in Friday Harbor, located at 140 Second Street in the center of town, offers delicious Thai and Vietnamese cuisine in a casual setting, including an outdoor table where you can eat and watch the passers by. Phone: 360-378-1917. Ethnic dining including Thai food and other international cuisine is also available at the Backdoor Kitchen -- a little hard to find but well worth the effort. For directions, menus and other information, visit The Backdoor Kitchen webpage here.
