Thai Farm Kitchen
Thai Farm Kitchen isn't just an essential part of South Brooklyn's food scene, it's one of our all-time favorite Thai restaurants in the city, full stop. The Church Ave. space is colorful and bright, and while you'll probably see a bunch of neighborhood regulars eating large entrees like catfish red curry here, the real star of the menu at this Kensington spot is the tom yum soup.
We found ourselves mourning the inevitable end of Thai Farm Kitchen’s tom yum soup before we could even see the bottom of the bowl. How often does soup cause premature bereavement? Not very, which is why this one - first sour, then spicy, then sweet - deserves a special commemorative plaque. Sit underneath the rattan fish nets at this casual spot, and order food until you can’t see your table. Don’t miss the pad thai - theirs is loaded with tamarind-glazed shrimp and calamari that even your seafood-hesitant friends will value deeply.
