Though you'll find all of the Thai staples at Mthai—including ginger-flavored stir-fries, noodle entrees, and five types of curries—a burger is not out of the question. The kitchen seems to delight in the challenge of blending Asian and American flavors into entirely new plates. The Mthai burger layers spicy beef with veggies and red curry sauce, for example, and the Mthai spaghetti mixes noodles with chicken and basil leaves. There's even an Americanized fried rice variant that tops its medley of ham, sausage, and raisins with a sunny-side-up egg.
Still, those seeking authentic fare won't be disappointed. The owner sources her classic recipes from Thailand to create bountiful servings of pad see eew and steamed jumbo prawns, so named for the airplanes they use to migrate between oceans. Most dishes are customizable when it comes to protein, allowing you to choose from chicken, pork, beef, tofu, seafood, or a combination.
