This Thai restaurant from the owners of curry shop Pumpui focuses on foods from the Isaan region, so expect a lot of sour, pungent, and spicy dishes. There’s a great drinks list full of natural wines, local microbrews, and Québec ciders that can stand up to all the chilies, garlic, and shallots. The sleek space has tavern glass carving up nooks for cozy date nights and booths big enough for groups, with a long bar for solo diners and couples.

There’s definitely a grill focus, including pork neck and yu choy greens and a whole trout slathered in herbs, but don’t miss any seasonal twist on som tam—their summer version with corn is something we dream about all year. End your meal with Pichai’s delicious Thai tea tiramisu that comes with layers of sponge cake soaked in milky tea and coated in crunchy toasted coconut.
