Thai Kitchen

My brother's favorite restaurant in Austin is Thai Kitchen. Like Madam Mam's, Thai Kitchen has an extensive menu, but while Madam Mam's specializes in noodles, Thai Kitchen has a wider range of non-noodle dishes and has plating that's conducive to sharing.

The Gatee Thom Yum Gai soup is the best dish on the menu. The tartness of the lemongrass makes the chicken based broth refreshing. I also highly recommend the Kuai Tai Haeng with duck. This almost tastes Vietnamese to me in its gentler seasoning; it is a good contrast to the stronger, sharper taste of other Thai dishes.
