Restaurant Owner – Letter from Restaurant Owner Jack Punma
My passion for cooking started out as a young child in my mother’s kitchen in Bangkok, Thailand. We cooked food in the morning and sold the meals to the local market. I had to do everything to help my mother, from pounding a mortar to make curry paste to climbing a coconut tree to retrieve a coconut. My mother gave me the passion for cooking and I wouldn’t trade my passion for anything in the world.
At the age of 26, I came to the United States and worked as a restaurant chef in order to support myself while attending college. On August 3rd, 2000, I opened my first Moon Thai & Japanese restaurant in Coral Gables and it was an awesome experience. Today, Moon Thai & Japanese has four locations: Coral Gables, Kendall, Coral Springs and Weston, FL, and am excited to have this opportunity to provide you with the best and most innovative Thai and Japanese selections.
We look forward to having you as our special guest.
Very Truly Yours,
and the Staff at Moon Thai
