It’s legit hard to decide what to get at the Canal Street Market in Soho. Our advice is to make a beeline for this Thai-style chicken spot. Your only real decision here is: steamed or grilled chicken. You can’t go wrong with either, but we always lean towards the sliced steamed version with fatty skin over garlic rice and a tangy sauce loaded with grated ginger. If you’re in the mood for some veggies, get the spicy shredded papaya salad with sweet and funky tamarind dressing. You’ll see a bunch of oval tables attached to columns, but we prefer eating in the communal seating area that has a big skylight and a colorful mural that looks like a Miró painting.
