Fans of Madam Mam’s Noodle(s) and More on West Gate Blvd. are all probably already aware by now of the name change to Sap’s Fine Thai Cuisine. You’ll find the reason for the said change at the very end of this Austin Chronicle article. The Sap’s staff assured us that only the name has changed. The staff remains the same. So no chef uniforms were hung or retired.
We have been to Sap’s and Madam Mam’s on West Anderson Lane three times in the last four weeks. Three times! That’s every weekend since March 4th, except for March 11th. I guess you can say we like Thai cuisine that much! Haha!
This is my new favorite dry noodle dish, Yum Guay Teaw. My choice of protein was fried tofu. This dish reminded me of the Philippines’ pancit sotanghon or pancit bihon except that this Thai version had cilantro and peanuts and had a sweetness and a hint of sourness to it.
Hubby ordered the Noodle Lord and opted for vermicelli instead of flat noodles. He is usually happy with the dishes he orders at Sap’s, but not during this visit. He found the sauce to be overly sweet. I guess you win some, you lose some.
This is my daughter’s current favorite, Lard Na with Fried Tofu with the vegetables served on the side. *rolls eyes* I know, we should have a good talk about this veggies on the side thing of hers. For now, I’ll just let her be.
My daughter seems to like it. I’m not a huge fan because I’m not particularly fond of saucy noodles unless it’s a pasta dish. For Asian noodles, I want them stir-fried or with soup.
I think I’m ready to order something new the next time we’re at Sap’s. Sap’s does have an extensive menu. I won’t be surprised if we find ourselves in Thailand again this weekend, gastronomically speaking at least. :)
Here’s a tip if you’re planning on having a meal at Sap’s, be sure to come for either a very early or very late lunch or dinner. Otherwise, there’s a very good chance you’ll have a hard time finding a parking spot and waiting a long time for a table.
