Dessert isn't so much an option as it is a complimentary thank-you for Chanpen's dine-in guests, those who have ventured into the tiny and bright, white-walled restaurant to sit at one of its five or six tables curiously topped with red snowflake-pattern tablecloths. Timed to arrive during the last few bites of a meal, it is an unexpected sweet treat of Chanpen's choosing: a scoop of green tea ice cream; delicately crispy fried bananas; or her version of the Thai-style dessert roti, made of long rectangles of flaky, crispy dough filled with warm banana and streaked with chocolate syrup.

Filled with classic Thai dishes, as well as signature creations, Chanpen is a hidden gem in South Phoenix.

"My mom doesn't care about starting over or building a business," Alan says. "She's a people person and just wants her customers to like her food. Even if most of them can't tell the difference now, she hopes the next time they eat Thai food somewhere else, they'll know what the good stuff tastes like."

The restaurants that you find hard to find are usually the best, just like the Vietnamese restaurant Pho Thanh in Central Phoenix.
