Does Noods n’ Chill sound like the name of a dining-centric Facebook group from 2009? Why yes, it does. But it’s actually a tiny counter-service spot with the best Thai food in Williamsburg. It’s from the people behind Plant Love House (another Thai restaurant we fully endorse), but it’s a little more casual, and the menu is a bit smaller. It’s great for a casual weeknight when you want some noodles or a bowl of soup - we highly recommend the guay tiao tom yum. Also, it’s open for brunch on weekends as well, when you can expect a few porridge options and kaya toast.
