In a setting of casual elegance, Maile’s Thai Bistro’s culinary crew crafts a menu brimming with authentic Thai dishes. Start with a slurp of tom yum soup, combining a mélange of lemon grass, Thai ginger, kaffir lime leaves, and a choice of tofu or meat in a tangy broth ($8.90+). Thumb noses at egg-based noodles in favor of pad thai, tender rice noodles sautéed alongside tofu, bean sprouts, and chives, and garnished with crunchy peanuts ($12.90+). Pad ped kung, also known as Evil Shrimp, blends red-curry sauce, vegetables, and fresh basil ($15.90) into a morally questionable dish that seduces taste buds and refuses to take its hat off during the National Anthem. Maile’s also showcases myriad meat-free options, such as the ong choi tofu, a mixture of Chinese watercress and silky tofu sizzling under yellow-bean sauce and crispy garlic ($11.90).
