Mie Thai, North Brunswick, NJ
I forgot my camera that night, but I did have leftovers from a surprisingly good dinner at Mie Thai in North Brunswick. Above is the Pad Prig Thai Sod -- beef with lime leaves, chili, Thai basil and young peppercorn in chili sauce. We asked for it Hot assuring the always cautious waiter that we liked spicy food. It had a nice kick -- just look at all the chili pepper seeds in it! The flavor was helped along by fresh peppercorns still on the stem (below).
The other dishes we tried were Larb with chicken, nice and gingery; and Pad Woon Sen -- shrimp and chicken sautéed with bean thread noodles, vegetables and eggs. There was something about this dish that made us not able to stop eating it.
My only complaint was that no one warned us that they were charging us $4 each for sticky rice! This place was good but way exceeded the usual $15 per person ethnic food max price tag, so definitely worth going back, but probably not as often as I'd like.
