Open until 1am every day, this BYOB restaurant is a beacon of hope for anyone in Ravenswood looking for a midnight snack. The cozy space only has a handful of tables and a wall full of cartoon drawings of Thai dishes. Use these illustrations to guide your ordering—get the hoy lai with clams cooked in chili sauce with Thai basil, and the crispy pork belly salad has the golden ratio of tart, salt, and heat. Both of these are at the back part of the menu, a.k.a. “The Congee Menu.” Why is it called the congee menu? If you order five dishes from that section a large bowl of free congee spontaneously appears.
