The Mamu Thai Noodle Truck would like to bring the most authentic and delicious Thai noodle dishes to the people of New York City.
We have scoured the city of Bangkok to find the best noodle recipes. Now that we have found them, our goal is to bring them here to New York City! Over the last eight months, we have exhausted all of our funds for such expenses as buying the truck, building a customized kitchen inside the truck, and getting various permits and licenses, to name just a few. There are so many details that go along with starting up and launching a food truck. Reaching our goal will allow us to purchase the following:
- A refrigerator (low boy)
- Truck fabrication (improvements to the kitchen)
- Flat grill (for great Thai street-food recipes)
- A point-of-sale machine
- Kitchen tools (woks, rice cooker, pots, pans, etc.)
- Ingredients (imported fish sauces, soy sauces, noodles, etc.)
- Supplies (utensils, containers, bags, cups, etc.)
- Menu board
- Printed menus and business cards
- Commissary fees (cleaning, general upkeep of the truck)

We have done our homework with these recipes. Our Uncle Jirawat currently operates three noodle shops in Bangkok, and some of these recipes will be featured on our truck. We are talking about dishes that have been handed down for generations in Thailand! This is truly tasty food, and it deserves an audience. Mamu Thai Noodle will have talented chefs on the truck making sure the quality of our food is always excellent.
There are many obstacles in operating a food truck. Especially in NYC. Just getting to this point has probably been the hardest thing we have ever had to do. However, we are determined to tackle all the challenges that lie ahead.
We have a citywide, 5 borough, permit for the streets of New York City. We plan on being all over town! Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter@mamuthainoodle, to find daily updates as to where we will be for the day. Also, to let us know what neighborhoods and streets you would like to see us!
