I went back to one of my favorite restaurants in Redlands. Last time I went to Mu, I went with friends and got one dish for myself. This time I went with my parents, and we got a few items to share.
I love their simple Tom Ka Soup. This coconut milk-based soup doesn’t skimp on tofu and veggies. It comes in a large bowl for sharing that stays hot from a flame underneath the bowl. It’s perfect, because you’ll want seconds.
As one friend once put it, “Pad Thai is like the gateway drug to Thai food.” My first experience with Thai food was indeed Pad Thai, and Mu makes a delicious version of it. Just make sure to ask for it without egg and fish sauce.
While Pad Thai has a bit of sweet to it, Pad See Ew is less so. I love the chewy-but-soft-but-firm texture of the wide flat rice noodles that go into this dish. Top it with all that tofu and I’m sold. Like the Pad Thai, make sure to omit the egg and fish sauce.
Lastly, my parents and I got the Indian Yellow Curry. It’s made with tofu, potatoes, onions, and coconut milk and was a delightful dish to round out the meal.
If you are ever in Redlands, I’d suggest checking out Mu. They also have a martini bar connected with an extensive selection of adult beverages.
