If you religiously watch Hot Ones or try to recreate the show at home, you should be a regular at Thai Esane. Dishes like chicken larb, papaya salad, and dry sukiyaki are legitimately fear-inducingly spicy, even on the lowest heat level you can choose from—don’t say we didn’t warn you if you go for Nina Hot. Inferno aside, this is one of the top options for Thai food in Nashville, and we hope to one day split an order of sausage with Sean Evans while he asks us extremely thoughtful questions. Until then, we’ll pretend we’re on the show by telling the waiter random details about our lives while profusely sweating.
