THAI FOOD!! So, so good. :)

It helps that Davis has a fair number of decent Thai restaurants and my Thai/Chinese-mix aunt makes some of the most delicious foods in the world.

So basically, this is like a poll on whether most people prefer Thai or Vietnamese food? It's all based on personal opinions though... and there's SO MANY different dishes in each country's cuisine.

I've never had any Thai food (sad right?!), but I only like some Vietnamese dishes.

That's actually quite a hard question since they're both very different.. :( can't give a straight answer unfortunately..

Viet food tastes so much "cleaner" to me, lighter with more veggies and herbs, more soups, also I'm more used to it as I'm vietnamese myself,

When I went to stay at my boyfriend's place in Thailand for a month i ate pretty much every thai food possible (and still do with him as thai restaurants outnumber viet restaurants 10:1 in my current city) and to be honest they're quite evenly matched...for beef/pork stirfries,noodle dishes like pad si ew etc I prefer thai food, but otherwise the curries and etc. I don't really enjoy, and some dishes can be a bit greasy for me sometimes. For soups and salads vietnamese food wins hands down :)...tho I love larb as well...

Overall though, I prefer vietnamese food slightly more...but I kind of wish that I had more experience with home cooked thai dishes....while i was visiting thailand I only had a 1-2 dishes cooked by his maids, the rest of the time the thai dishes i tried over there and here were in restaurants, and i'm pretty sure that they're not as "authentic" or at least cooked with more oil or have some fusion elements to them compared to dishes cooked at home. For example I'm used to eating pho at home with most of the fat having been skimmed off the broth; I basically hate eating pho at restaurants because its oily as hell LOL.

Other than that the only time i wouldn't have a preference is between the very similar dishes, like canh chua/tom yum goong, or ga nuong/kai yang..
