Backstory: Jamjuree was originally founded in Bangkok by three sisters and one brother. When some of the family members immigrated to Seattle, they opened this American branch.
Massaman: a yellow Thai curry with Muslim origins. It features many traditional Thai ingredients, including coconut milk and bay leaves.
Satay: meat (or sometimes veggies or tofu) that’s been marinated and grilled on a skewer. At the table, it’s traditionally dipped in peanut sauce.
