The former cook (owners?) at Boon Chu have resurfaced at Chao Thai, which is right around the corner at Whitney and Broadway. Its the space of the former Chao Zhou Bowl.
The food was really good! The Tom Yum was clear - no tomato and very "clean" tasting - its flavors precise and balanced. Very interesting variation.
The Shrimp Thai fried rice was done extremely well. Great technique, producing perfectly wokked rice, egg and shrimp.
There were four condiments on the table: sugar, dried pepper flakes, hot peppers in vinegar and another pepper fish sauce concotion.
I definitely recommend a try. I am going to be back.
