紐約泰國菜推薦 Sripraphai


昨天因事途經紐約,繞到皇后區woodside的一家泰國國料理Sripraphai用午餐,本來想去Lupa吃個麵就好,但一查之下發現這家消費廉宜的泰國小館子在紐約時報拿了二星,首席食評Frank Bruni稱讚他維持了泰國菜的原味,不像美國多數泰菜那樣為了配合美國人口味而減低辣度,增加甜味以致失去該有的平衡。這家餐廳也獲得米其林Bib Gourmand 的輪胎人推薦,價廉物美。

我們在下午兩點到達,餐廳半滿,點了酥炸軟殼蟹配芒果沙拉---軟殼蟹炸的外酥裡嫩,配上芒果絲、魚露、香菜、以及其他泰式調味料做成的沙拉醬汁,味道既刺激又平衡,非常成功,此外冬蔭功蝦湯,墨魚炒河粉,綠咖哩雞的味道都很豐富來勁,連thai tea都比別處的夠味許多,實在不枉了我們繞道而來吃他一餐。

這兒算是一般小館子的菜,家常而實惠,並沒有把泰國菜做的時髦精緻,我固然也喜歡後者,但考慮到價錢---以上的菜肴加兩份外帶的甜點共約四十元( cash only)---實在令人無從挑剔了。

其他詳情我再去吃幾次後再寫。

Sripraphai has been described as the best Thai restaurant east of Cali for many many yrs. Great home cooked style thai food.
Try the less "known" thai fares next time you visit... order fried eggs with the (ground) pork with basil. If Chinese water spinach is in season, order the pak boon moo krob. Stay away from the "americanized/internationalized" green papaya salad and try the fishcake appetizer, yum woon sen or neur yang nam tok.
Sripraphai is still the best place for Thai food in NYC but other restaurants aren't too far behind. If you're more into Thai fine dining then give Kittichai a try.

謝謝,我對泰國菜所知/所吃有限,所以第一次去總是點自己知道的基本款,但這家Sripraphai我還會再去,也打算照你說的點一些更不那麼出名的道地菜色。

再次謝謝你給的點菜建議,太好了!

我最近去過一家在Union square的泰式餐廳()university restaurant,但是發現菜單實在看不懂,想要點各月亮蝦餅也不成...希望能夠請您提點一下。
