Madam Mam's Noodles & More2514 Guadalupe, 472-8306
Longtime Austinite "Sap" Apisaksiri married his Bangkok high school sweetheart, a food and restaurant columnist and acknowledged master chef, and brought her back to Austin to open a restaurant in 2001, providing Austin Thai food lovers with a world-class dining experience. All the authentic Thai homestyle dishes served in this very popular campus-area spot are "Mam"'s family recipes. The food is divine and very affordable. Try the restorative Tom Khah, coconut soup with chicken, the definitive Thai Beef Salad and the fiery, sinus-clearing Pad Cha Catfish and you'll be hooked.
