MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Set on a corner and flooded with sunshine, Doi Moi’s interior is defined by its light, bright and mostly white modern look. Sit at the long, expansive counter facing the exhibition kitchen, or in one of two dining areas with sleek tables framed by simple blonde wood chairs. The restaurant's interior belies the flavor-packed riot of its food. The kitchen turns out spicy and bold Southeast Asian dishes, most with a heavy Thai bent. Seared salmon in a pool of turmeric-tinged coconut milk is simply prepared but flavorful, while the pandan "ho ho" takes on the popular packaged snack cake with an Asian flair. Pandan-infused chiffon cake rolled around a coconut kaya frosting and encased in a white chocolate shell, this ho ho is anything but ho-hum.
