This East Villager comes to NYC via Bangkok, and the focus is on the spicy Isaan-style cuisine from the Northern region. We dropped by on a recent Friday, and it was packed only a few days after opening. Once we camped out at a communal table we were able to see why - the affordable, flavor-packed dishes are on point. Must-try items include a spicy chicken wing soup that we nominate as NYC's best new hangover cure, and the noodles, which may seem run-of-the-mill but manage to go beyond what you'd find at your local Thai joint. This is some of the most authentic Isaan outside of Queens, so hit it up.
