This Thai BYOB at the edge of Little Italy serves classic noodle and rice dishes at very reasonable prices. An interesting option is the house kaeng pa, a hot and spicy country-style curry made with beef or chicken that one ups familiar favorites such as panang and massaman. A few northern Thai options are scattered throughout the menu, most notably in the appetizer section. Miang khaam, a mix of roasted coconut and peanuts, shallots, lime, fresh ginger and chili presented on a bed of lettuce with a sweet and sour sauce is a standout, as is the Thai sausage, a blend of ground pork, sticky rice and various Thai seasonings. If you don't bring your own booze, you'll find plenty of non-alcoholic options, including smoothies, bubble teas and honey milk.
