Authentic-tasting Thai with its liberal use of flavorful hot chili peppers, savory fish sauce and acidic lime can be difficult to come by. For years PieHole has had to make the trek into Atlantic Highlands to Kunya Siam to get our fix of heat, acid and umami.
Fortunately, Muang Thai opened up on Front Street and now PieHole is within walking distance of a kitchen that is unafraid to churn out boldly flavored, authentic-tasting Thai food. We noticed that the restaurant’s expansion into the space formerly occupied by Flowers on Front is complete so we took the opportunity to explore their lunch menu and see how the new space shaped up.
