The folks behind Pure Thai Cook House and Feast have collaborated to create one of Thai Town’s newest joints, Taladwat.
My food buddy from Instagram, @NYCFoodFOMO, organized a few of us to go try some of their noteworthy dishes. Here’s how it went down:
I don’t remember the names of any of these dishes, but I can do a good job explaining them. The first one is a scallion omelette. This was great.
This roasted calamari was a favorite among all of us I think.
The coconut curry chicken was a little sweet for my liking, but the meat was delicious.
On the opposite end, this savory and spicy larb style ground chicken dish was awesome. My favorite of the night.
We had two types of pork. This was a pork belly in curry.
And this was stir fried with string beans. I liked this better.
This ground shrimp and shrimp paste “sausage” patty in a banana leaf was delicious. You can see the herbs mixed into it. Lots of flavor.
This braised ginger short rib dish was really tender. Definitely a go to for you meat lovers.
Soak up that sauce with this nice rice.
Then move on to dessert: pumpkin custard on sticky rice and mango sticky rice.
This place is worth trying when the sister joint Pure is jam-packed (it often is). I still prefer Pure to this, and perhaps Chai Thai and Noodies as well (for this part of town, anyway).
