This small restaurant in the International District is somewhat inconspicuous; being across the street from the much
larger Ocean City and surrounded by other Asian restaurants, it would be easy to overlook. What caught my eye was
the photo display of dishes available, and the reasonable prices.
Although I think Tropics is a chain, it does not taste like the typical franchised restaurant--everything is made with the care of a local mom & pop restaurant.
My favorite dish, Ginger Tofu, was no problem for the kitchen even though it is not on the menu. It turned out to be one of the top quality examples of this dish in the city.
Although I did not get to try the curries they looked wonderful (the tables are placed so close together it was hard not to notice what everyone else is eating).
An unexpected surprise was when I tried the Black Sticky Rice dessert--it was so good I had the same thing when I returned.
