I love the Chelsea Market, but spend much less time there than I’d like. While a Ronnybrook chocolate chip shake and a lobster roll are my go-to indulgences when I do make it to the west side foodie heaven, during a recent trip with my family, (and an unbelievably long lobster place line) we opted for the overlooked Chelsea Thai, the best Thai in the city according to a very picky friend.
Their Larb Gai, one of my favorite dishes anywhere, was certainly note worthy – tempter rising spicy and loaded with complex incredible flavor. Most of the noodle dishes are also great, though after ordering via number system, I can’t recall the particular names of the ones we sampled. I do know that one was uncharacteristically bland in comparison (it had a soy sauce and lettuce).
Rarely too packed, I highly recommend you give this place a try next time you’re in the mood for something substantial and with kick. And a Ronnybrook is perfect for cleansing the spice afterwards.
