New Thai in Woodside (EGB)

Joe MacBu | Sep 17, 2007 04:39 PM

EGB is a new "Thai & American" restaurant, just east of the 52nd St station (7 train).
I stopped in today to grab the menu. The place looks nice enough, but the menu is very scary. Along with the expected Thai dishes, they have a too-broad hodgepodge selection from other cuisines. While this usually means that most dishes are prepared poorly, I'm hoping that at least the Thai dishes might be good (I'm not holding my breath though).

Everyone knows the usual Thai dishes to expect. Here's what I didn't expect (despite the "& American"): Chili con carne, tabouleh, Cobb salad, Tuscan salad, a large selection of burgers and kai-yang (chicken breast sandwiches) in flavors such as "OJ simpsons", "Pope" and "Da vinci". Oh boy.

Based on the number of items on the menu alone, I would guess their specialty is the burger (they have 34!). But I am rather hoping that they excel at the handful of Thai salads (larb).

Northside of Roosevelt Ave, near 54th St
