White walls, chairs, and a long, cushioned banquette give Em' Thai Kitchen a modern look with a few simple accents. Red-plastic vines sprawl out from the ceiling above the dining room’s centerpiece, a wooden table topped with different-size vases and plastic flowers. The “urban kitchen” provides a sampling of appetizers, including traditional spring rolls, vegetables wrapped in rice skin, and moo-yang, a Bangkok street food–inspired dish of spicy, bite-size marinated pork in tamarind sauce. The baked duck uses tamarind for a glaze that caramelizes the skin outside while keeping the meat sweet and tender; “moc” duck protein does the job for vegetarians. Basics like pad thai and pad kimow don’t stand out, but a “Spicy Real Thai” menu—no substitutions allowed—exists for authenticity. Buttered roti bread and small mountains of rice soak up the saucy entrées.Recommended Dishes
