Stopped by Sky Ice last night after I read that this new little place on Fifth Ave in Park Slope was run by Thais from Chiang Mai. I was after their khao soi, curried noodles. I had a lovely conversation with the owner and also was persuaded to try their Thai iced tea ice cream, which was phenomenally delicious.
But I'm not a sweet person, I'm a savoury person. So on to the noodles. I am hugely picky about my NY Thai food after years in SE Asia (I don't even like Sripaphai much). OK, these noodles weren't exactly what you'd get in Chiang Mai. But for NY--and especially for Brooklyn--they were more than good. The owner says she brings in the curry paste specially from Thailand, and you can taste it. I asked for extra chili sauce and it ended up being a great balance of flavours and spice.
They have a (very) few other savoury dishes and will likely expand if business takes off. Go and try it!
