Bradley Beach is among the most underrated towns for dining down the Shore, and Thai spot Bamboo Leaf is its star restaurant. We really like the curry options—order the duck penang or the spicy green vegetables—as well as classic starters and entrees like pad see ew. The restaurant is BYOB, but everything travels well if you just want to chill, eat, and drink on your front porch.
