KHE-YO-new Laotian place in Tribeca-A Hit!

UES Mayor | Aug 14, 201301:19 AM

Tried this place last night and what a wonderful find! Never had Laotian cuisine and the closest thing I can describe as is sort of like Thai cuisine. They start you off w sticky rice basket w two sauces, one of which is a very spicy fish sauce and the other a savory one which tasted like eggplant or tomato chutney like jam. This was followed by our order of Jurgielewicz Duck salad-tender slices of duck over a bed of greens, local fish laap-kind of like sashimi bordering on cerviche, crunching coconut rice which had slices of sausage and a crispy bottom to the rice itself. Even non coconut lovers will enjoy this dish as the flavor of coconut is only faintly present.Pork and shrimp rolls were wraps that you made yourself by assembling ingredients-a very refreshing dish especially w the watercress and other greens served along side. The Best dish was the Berkshire spare ribs! Very meaty ribs with a delicious glaze-I could have eaten 10 portions-not that serving size was small, but because it's exactly how I like ribs-savory deliciousness. Had wine-house pour by the glass-"Gyotaku"-an Alsacian wine which paired perfectly with the food. Bartender (I dined at bar) George was the perfect host and rest of staff were all very nice. Perhaps being a new place, everything and everyone was spot on. I do hope they continue to keep it up as I will continue to go as long as it remains the same. Menu is limited-not in a bad way, but it makes it so easy to order. Give it a try but I recommend reservations unless you go very early or want to take a chance on bar seating which is first come, first served.
