Can you take the heat? That’s the question diners should ask before ordering anything at Secret Thai Restaurant, an excellent and increasingly not-so-secret eatery on West Judge Perez Drive in Chalmette. The Southeast Asian cuisine is well-known for its liberal use of chilies, but Thai restaurants often dial down the heat to please spice-sensitive Western palates. That’s not the case here, where dishes can be ordered according to a five-star heat barometer, with five stars hitting “real Thai spicy,” according to the wait staff.
