(map) Ready to Thai one on? Fans of the spicy cuisine now have a sleek, elegant new option for Thai food, as Madam Mam’s opens its newest location in the Galleria. The extensive menu features soups, salads, curries, and noodles, as well as specialties like the Nuer Ob (P46), above. Like the Thai version of pot roast, beef is slow-cooked in a sweet-and-spicy sauce of onion and tomato. The chunks of beef were tender enough to be pulled apart by chopsticks.
There are many versions of noodles on the menu: noodle soup, stir-fried noodles, rice noodles. The Guay Teaw Kua Gai (F11) are wide, flat noodles stir-fried with your choice of meat (in this case, pork), eggs, sprouts and pickled radish. This satisfying dish has to be the Thai version of comfort food. Below, one of the dozen appetizers, deep-fried chicken wings. Although they look spicy, they were actually mild and juicy beneath the crisp skin.
The restaurant has a lot of arty touches, such as fountains, a sculptural dividing wall, and these baskets decorating the ceiling. The windows are shaded by metal “branch” panels. Bamboo abounds, and the ethereal Asian music in the background almost gives the feel of a yoga studio. Curry on over!
