From Maile's Kitchen To Yours
As the owner of the newly debuted Maile's Thai Bistro, Maile Sengoura is bringing her patented flare in the kitchen to throngs of hungry customers at Ward Village.
Sengoura, who traces her passion for Southeast Asian cuisine to her mother, who whipped up fresh, tasty, and flavorful dishes from Thai and Laos. From an early age, Maile was familiar in the kitchen and after working at a variety of restaurants across Honolulu, she opted to start her own and opened up Maile's Thai Bistro in hawaii Kai.
Fast-forward to today, and we're thrilled to welcome Maile and her bold Thai flavors to Auahi street in the form of Honolulu's second Maile Thai Bistro. At her core, Maile's Thai Bistro is all about sharing their love of food. So much so that they've been kind enough to share one of their favorite recipes with us in the form of Glass Beef Noodles. With a little kick, this dish makes for an ideal dinner on a crisp fall evening. Follow the details below and you're sure to have an unforgettable meal for you and your guests. Enjoy.
