Hug Esan NYC


77-16 Woodside Ave, Elmhurst
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Hug Esan is on the same block in Elmhurst as some of our other favorite Thai spots, like Zaab Zaab and Ayada. Get a group together and settle into the tiny, vibrant dining room for a meal you’re going to be talking about for a while. Build your meal around a whole tilapia: it comes grilled or fried, and both are good choices. You should also get a bowl of spicy mee ka tee or khao piak sen, a meat-heavy soup thickened with pork blood. Round out your meal with some salads and small bites. We’re especially partial to the grilled chicken livers and crispy frog legs.

Ayada is one of the best Thai restaurants in the city. Bring a big group to Elmhurst spot, and cover your table in duck, catfish, and drunken noodles.
