NYC--Queens--Jackson Heights: Arunee Thai; restaurant review


Arunee Thai  78-23 37th Ave., (718) 205-5559. 

Dressed in weathered wood and colorful fabrics, this new kid on the block presents a fresh food face in the neighborhood for Thai cuisine.  Standard lunch specials are available as well as a lunch box (sort of like a big bento box), which includes smaller portions but more variety.  The unusual Mussamun curry with coconut milk, avocado, onions, roasted peanuts, and zucchini is a popular dish, but don’t miss the tasty pra ram rong soang (broccoli with peanut sauce), pad see eiw (flat rice noodles with egg and broccoli), pad kra praow (spicy basil with chili and garlic), tom yum soup (with lemongrass and mushrooms), and Panang curry (with coconut milk, basil, and string beans).  For many items you can choose either a meat or vegetarian tofu option.  Cocktails are on the menu along with my preferred fresh coconut juice or Thai iced tea in a trendy Mason jar, and they are the perfect accompaniment.
