Miami isn't exactly brimming with great Thai restaurants, which is partly why Cake Thai Kitchen is such a novelty. The hole-in-the-wall spot crammed into a derelict Biscayne Boulevard strip mall is owned and operated by chef Phuket Thongsodchaveondee. The 28-year-old toque opted out of a job at the swanky sushi joint Morimoto to serve affordable and authentic Thai street food to the masses. Previously, he worked at another posh Japanese restaurant, Makoto, in Bal Harbour. At the front of his tiny eatery stands a buffet station that offers lemongrass-rubbed roasted chicken alongside roasted rice studded with crisp shallots and fried pork. Sometimes it's Penang curry or fried chicken. Otherwise, the menu consists mainly of curries, noodle dishes, salads, and fried rice. There's plenty to choose from. For dessert, try Phuket's mother’s Thai custard.
