Dok Bua Thai Kitchen
The chefs at Dok Bua Thai Kitchen don't need much more than a few traditional ingredients to make Thai dishes worthy of praise from Boston Magazine. The writers named the eatery Best Thai in their Best of Boston 2011 piece, citing dishes such as “miang kum, an ultra-flavorful combination of dried shrimp, toasted coconut, peanuts, lime, ginger, and tamarind sauce served with spinach leaves for wrapping.” Dok Bua also earned a "very good to excellent" Zagat rating.
The servers in the dining room deliver still-steaming plates of deep-fried snapper with red-curry sauce, crispy pork with chili and basil sauce over rice, and time-tested pad thai with sautéed rice noodles, egg, and peanuts. Black-sesame dumplings in ginger syrup and smooth coconut ice cream cradled in a coconut shell bring pleasant endings to feasts, unlike the discovery that papier mâchè is not a good material for building tables.
