Manao is a casual spot for Thai food that’s both modern and authentic. They have your garden-variety street dishes like drunken noodles, but also some interesting apps like pork belly nuggets with a chile paste dip and taro crispy rolls. Gather some humans you don’t hate, order a round of Thai iced teas and a platter of crunchy, creamy lime zest chicken (our favorite thing here), and you’ve got an outdoor lunch perfect for people watching on Pine Street. (Or, more realistically, if it’s raining - a fun, laid-back indoor setup for a Thai food feast.) How ya like Manao? (Sorry.)
