real khao sui, anywhere in Manhattan?
Wondering where to find khao sui in Manhattan. For some reason (perhaps because it's more from northern Thailand) most Thai restaurants don't have it on the menu. Any suggestions?
I just made some for dinner!
A lot of places have it, but it's not always called Khao Soi - sometimes they'll call it Chiang Mai noodles or floating market curry noodles. I just discovered this guy's blog today - he's on a mission to eat Khao Soi at every Thai place that has it in NYC, so he has a really good listing of places that have it (and he rates them, too). http://khaoisoi.blogspot.com
Hi Palate, that's me with the khao soi blog, Scarlet, thanks for posting it. My current list of places that have it in Manhattan is:
Galanga Thai Restaurant
Kelley & Ping
Kin Khao Restaurant
Ozen Asian Fusion Cuisine Inc
Pam Real Thai
Thai Market Inc
Just learned last night about Kelley & Ping serving it from some scouts of mine, pulled over from their sister restaurant Kin Khao. Haven't had K&P's, but if Kin Khao's is any indication, it's probably good.
in addition to the names Scarlet listed, it's sometimes called Northern Thai Noodles or simply Egg Noodles with Yellow Curry. Enjoy your search, it's addictive as you can tell! Let us know what you find.

Chowbeth, what is it listed as on the menu at Bangkok Grand Palace? I don't see it on their menu on menupages http://www.menupages.com/restaurantde...
I've since heard about Pad Thai and been to Blue Chili (good, but lights give me seizures), Open the Sesame (pretty strange version), Tony Thai's on 7th in Park Slope (good for take out), and of course Rhong Tiam which has to be my favorite in the city overall.

Thanks for the tip on Blue Chili, Xigua. I'll definitely give that one a try soon as I just found it through the dish search on menupages.com. I was surprised as well that Ozen, a place that serves Thai, Japanese, and Vietnamese food actually had really good Khao Soi. I usually discount those multi-cuisine places as well, but in this case I think the chef is Thai.
