[TSK Eats Maui] Hidden Gem on the Road to Hana: My Thai, Thai Cuisine by Chef Jen

Mar 13, 2016

Along the road to Hana, somewhere close to before reaching Hana is a small market place with about 5 dining stalls. Aside from the usual offerings of fish tacos and fish n’ chips, was a delightful hidden gem: My Thai, Thai cuisine by chef Jen.

Thai cuisine on the road to Hana! That’s like finding a Haagen Daz in the middle of the Sahara!

Needless to say, our little party went for it. We had the shrimp pad thai and the shrimp fried rice.

6 large bouncy shrimps with alot of flat rice noodles, carrots and cabbage. Humongous portions.

Also 6 shrimp. Also humongous portions.

Taste-wise, we went for medium spicy, which was very mild. I’ve chosen Thai spicy at other thai joints in Hawaii before, and I wasn’t going to make the same mistake again.

The dishes were competantly fried. Chef Jen accomplishes her one woman show with 2 wok burners. However, the burners don’t use the super strong flames that is normally used with south-east asian cuisine, so the breath of wok flavour is lacking. All that said, it was a refreshing change in flavours.

My friend, R, wanted to bring us to his favourite Nasi Biryani place at Little India, Singapore. Unfortunately, his stall was closed that day, and hence we rerouted ourselves to the timeless Tekka Market smack…

In memory of Lewin Terrace

Once upon a time, there was a restaurant on the slopes of Fort Canning Hill called Lewin Terrace. Unfortunately, I only had the fortune of dining there once on their final year of operations in 2019.
