Three-year-antique East Cambridge Thai eating place Pandan Leaf (569 Cambridge St.) isn’t any greater, but its proprietors have replaced it with a brand new Thai restaurant, 9Zaab, with a focus on Thai street foods (and attractive maintenance).
The pivot far from the ubiquitous Thai-American build-your-personal-curry type of a menu and into more of a road meals cognizance might be a clever one; fantastically new Thai restaurants like Daken and Kor Tor Mor have been locating keen fan bases for his or her street meals-inspired menus. (In truth, 9Zaab and Kor Tor Mor are a part of the same restaurant family, in keeping with enterprise filings with the kingdom. They are also seemingly linked to Tom Yum Koong in Medford and Kapow Thai in Dorchester.)
9Zaab does have lots of familiar curries and noodle dishes for folks who are searching out pad thai, mango curry, etc. But those looking to dive deeper into the Thai road food canon will find a huge variety of options, mainly within the rice dish branch: Khao mun gai, Khao moo dang, Khao naped, and masses more.
The sai up — an herby beef sausage from northern Thailand — is an early standout at 9Zaab, as are the bird butts, listed as “grilled” at the menu however served deep-fried as an alternative, with a sweet chili dipping sauce.
The area seats approximately 20, and the decor is tailor-made to get diners excited about street meals: The focal point of the room is a giant photograph of people eating street meals in Thailand, and a tv performs non-prevent movies of Mark Wiens, a prolific food and journey writer, and YouTuber who’s based in Bangkok, ingesting his manner thru Asia and beyond. There’s full-service eating for individuals who need to eat at the restaurant; takeout and transport also are to be had. 9Zaab is open from 11 a.M. To ten p.M. Every day, except for Mondays, when it is closed.
Note: 9Zaab serves a few desserts, such as shaved ice, mango sticky rice, and more. But if diners have room for more dessert after, the fairly new Elmendorf baking deliver store and cafe is a brief walk diagonally across the road, serving a mix of baked items made in-house (like cookies) and baked items from Salem icon A&J King (like croissants). Make it a two-forestall East Cambridge meals move slowly.
