New restaurant in Saint Augustine
And it’s great one. In the location where Spy was on 21 Hypolita street, is Mam Thai & Sushi Bistro is a new, freshly painted, modern & clean feeling family owned restaurant run by husband & wife (cooking in the kitchen) that makes authentic Thai food. With a unique menu that has lots of options on it, (and extra add-on items that today’s foodies like to eat) it's easy to share plates with friends.
The most important thing is freshness and quality of the food served on our table. So we think Saint Augustine just got a GREAT restaurant on Hypolita Street. Mam Thai & Sushi Bistro opened only yesterday, 6/16/2016, and is serving top-notch items with only Sake being the one item they were still waiting on (Coming in later today). We stopped by for lunch today and OMG (as the kids say) it is amazing! You have got to give this place a try.
We ordered several dishes just to get a taste of as much as we could. Starting with Chicken Satay – moist and delish, with a great peanut butter/pepper side-sauce! Then on to Crispy Shrimp rolls – crispy deliciousness, with a great minced peanut/pepper side-sauce! As a surprise, the owners sent out the Fresh Summer Roll with shrimp, veggies, rice noodles in a rice wrapper – another amazing side-sauce! We had to try some of the Sushi: Sashimi Appetizer with very fresh White fish, Tuna, and Salmon. Triple-yum!
Time for the main courses; Panang curry Chick – a staple in my Thai diet – and what they call Tiger Cry, it’s a grilled Flank Steak (marinated in some amazing Thai spices) with large cut veggies. Both were done to perfection and something we will order again, no doubt. The whole menu makes you want to start all over again.
Mam Thai & Sushi Bistro at 21 Hypolia Street in Saint Augustine is simply a great restaurant! We recommend it.
