Madam Mam's has been the best place on the Drag for authentic Thai cuisine since 2001 (just try to find a table during the lunch rush), but another great quality that makes Madam Mam's one of the best is its proximity to the KLRU television studio in the UT Communication Building B, where Austin City Limits is taped. (We met Ben Folds!) Visiting musicians often find themselves exploring the Drag and eating at Sapachai "Sap" Apisaksiri and Chatfung's ("Mam's") popular restaurant. Sound check is at 2pm, so chances for a celebrity sighting are good between 3 and 5pm. Yes, you can be paparazzi, too!
