Mam's Happy Thai Express



Soup Bowl


How do you eat Thai soup?

Eat directly from the chopsticks and sip on the broth using the soup spoon. Or, use the chopsticks to pick up bits of meat, veggies, and noodles and place a small amount of each in the spoon. Scoop up some broth and eat from the soup spoon for the perfect bite.



Your Guide to Thai Noodles: 

  • Wide Rice Noodles (Guay Tiew Naam)...wide rice noodles are one of the most delicious types of Asian noodle, and one of the most popular Thai specialties... 

  • Thin Rice Noodles (Phad Thai) ... 

  • Egg Noodles (Ba Mee Hang) ... 

  • Bean Thread Noodles (Phad Woon Sen).



Curries are an important part of Thai cuisine and refer to both the dish as well as the curry paste used to make the dish. There are three main types of Thai curries—red, yellow, and green—which are categorized by the color of the curry paste. The color of the chilies and other ingredients gives each curry its distinct hue.


Our Story Begins In Bangkok, Thailand

Mam (pronounced Mem by Thai people) was born and raised in Bangkok.


Inspired by an uncle, she was naturally attracted to cooking and eventually, one thing leading to another, owned her own restaurant there until 2009.


That year her sister, living in Berkeley, California asked her for help with operating the family restaurant, Jasmine Thai, located in the Northside neighborhood bordering  U.C. Berkeley.  


Then in 2016, Mam married Peter and desiring a change, transferred to The Butcher's Son, a sensational Berkeley vegan delicatessen where she founded 'YES MAM!, a pop-up featuring veganized versions of her favorite Thai dishes.  She was widely respected there and considered by the owners to be an employee of the month, every month, and a true 'bad ass' in the kitchen. 


Because of Peter's desire to move to Ashland and her desire to operate her own restaurant again, Mam is proud to bring you 'Mam's Happy Thai Express'.


Every hour is happy hour at Happy Thai.
