Ugly Baby

Perfect For: Casual Weeknight Dinner

Ugly Baby is a little restaurant in Carroll Gardens with maybe eight tables, but it’s serving some of the best Thai food we’ve eaten in NYC. This is the new place from the people behind Kao Soy, the popular Red Hook Thai restaurant that made everyone sad when it closed. Ugly Baby serves traditional foods from four different regions in Thailand, which means that a lot of the food is very spicy - but not in the way that makes you feel like your tongue is being burned off. The spiciness just intensifies the flavors here, all of which are already impressive. Ugly Baby is worth traveling for, and once you get here, make sure the Tue Ka Ko (coconut milk cakes), Laab Ped Udon (spicy duck salad), Khao Soi Neur (curry noodle soup), and Kua Kling (“brutally spicy” beef) are on your table.
