Courtney Lawson and Jacqueline Robinson Lawson | Wise Boomer Chic – Hot and Mobile

I always enjoy having brunch with my daughter, Ms. Courtney Lawson, Henry’s mama!  While Mr. Henry is away for the summer, leaving his mama the freedom to be out and about, we had the pleasure having Sunday Brunch at Mali Kitchen Thai in UpTown Dallas.

We both love Thai cuisine and this being my first time at Mali Kitchen, it was the perfect choice for a hot Sunday afternoon in Dallas.

The Restaurant

Malai Kitchen offers a modern approach to Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Chef Braden Wages sources the freshest ingredients available to make as much as possible from scratch, including house-made curry paste, coconut milk, and sriracha sauce.With many dishes the sauce can make the difference in tantalizing your taste buds.

Though the cuisine is inherently healthy, Braden takes it a step further by using only lean proteins—white chicken meat, beef tenderloin, and seafood. Since each dish on the menu is made-to-order, all can be modified to accommodate dietary preferences and intolerances. Half of the menu can made vegetarian and vegan friendly, while nearly all of the dishes can be prepared gluten-free.

Every dish we ordered was excellent and the service was splendid.

We had:

  • Fried Imperial Rolls (Cha Gio)  – Shrimp, Pork, Bean thread Noodles, Herbs, Crispy Rice Paper
  • Thai Chicken Wings (Peek Gai Nam Daeng)  – Jumbo Whole Wings, Thai Chili Garlic Glaze, Toasted Sesame Seeds

  • Lemongrass Chicken (Ga Xao Sa) – Wok-Seared Chicken Breast, Green Onions, Carrots,Lemongrass-Caramel Sauce, Jasmine Rice, Sliced Ginger Caramel Sauce, Jasmine Rice, Sliced Ginger (Substitute Fried Rice +2)
  • Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mow) – Fresh Jasmine Rice Flat Noodles, Spicy Chopped Tenderloin, Bell Peppers, Thai Basil (Substitute Chicken or Shrimp N/C)
