Twitter Facebook Email Print I’ve already shared my personal enjoyment of Mamu Thai, naming them in my Best of Astoria Picks. Finally, I got to bring my WHA friends along for a tasting, during that time we had eleven dishes. Check out these five highlights. Marielle Solan captured the bright colors of this tasting, big props to her! This Larb Gai salad is made with minced spicy chicken mixed with shallots, fresh lime, ground roasted rice, with a hint of mint. If you are sensitive to spiciness beware this has kick. This is a great starter or can be a meal all on it’s own. If I thought the Larb Gai was kicky, my taste-buds were not prepared for this Yum Goon Chiang. Slices of sweet sausage, carrots, onions, and cucumbers tossed in a lime cilantro dressing. Again beware if spice ain’t your thing. I should mention that the dressing does have a nice sweetness that helps offset the heat. This Bangkok inspired Roat Det has a slow cooked beef broth. The noodles are fresh and hand-cut, and last but certainly not least, its topped with house-made pork rinds. The beef broth is out of this world, savory with a hint of sweetness. It’s lip smacking good. This Panang Curry is very colorful and it’s a little different from other Thai curries. It’s a little thicker, almost like a light gravy. The coconut milk on top gives it a bit of sweetness. This curry is very flavorful and not super spicy. I like spice, so when dining in at Mamu Thai, I always request the spice tray for this curry. The final highlight came at the end of the meal! It’s a seasonal specialty so get it while you can. Sliced mango served with a sweet coconut milk based sticky rice. The rice is sweet, the mango slices juicy. It’s a great dessert and you should get it before Mango season is over!

In a pocket on the Astoria/LIC border that is still industrial, but I guess the secret is out. I hope they stay around for a long time.
