Only lovers of hellaciously hot food can handle what Arunee’s menu calls “medium spicy.” Chili peppers are sprinkled on top of many dishes, including a superior yum nuea salad with succulent pieces of beef, and yum pla murk, tender squid mixed with celery and lemongrass. More delicate tongues can rest easy with the rich, mild panang chicken-and-vegetable curry.
