Individuals like encountering new things. It’s the reason we travel and move and go to exercise classes with names like Beebe’s Buttcamp. It’s likewise why we go to eateries. Attempting another place after work conveys something energizing to your something else really commonplace Tuesday. Unless you’re one of those individuals who works at Space X, or your activity title is “Futurist,” or you’re a big name doula. In which case, congrats and make the most of your night on the love seat.
In any case, for whatever remains of us, there’s Ugly Baby – a simple and brilliant place to have a go at something new. This eatery serves nourishment from all finished Thailand, and it’s about the nearest you get in NYC to feeling like you’re really eating there, rather than in a little BYOB spot in the Brooklyn the suburbs that is Carroll Gardens.

Appalling Baby is a solitary stay with a modest bunch of tables, a couple of bar seats disregarding the kitchen, and almost no in the method for “vibe” – other than the dividers, which are canvassed in rainbow wall paintings. It sort of feels like what an eatery would look like on the off chance that you let imaginatively gifted eight-year-olds get high on Gushers and after that have at it.
In light of the look of the place, you may not at first think Ugly Baby is the eatery to help your exhausting Tuesday. Be that as it may, once your server drops your menu, you understand this is all stuff you haven’t seen at other Thai eateries around NYC. The staff will joyfully clarify things, however they’re generally worried about disclosing to you how zesty each dish is. In the event that they can tell you’re not readied, they will ensure you’ve been cautioned. Run forward with certainty. Your Tuesday merits it.
Tue Ka Ko (Coconut Milk Cakes)
These are somewhere in between muffins and biscuits, and just a little bit sweet. They’re how you want to kick off a meal here – or take them home for what we imagine would be a very nice desk breakfast. Your coworker Karen and her tupperware of fruit salad should feel intimidated.
Kao Tod Nam Klook (Curried Rice With Pork Skin, Peanut, & Ginger)This is basically a fried rice salad with pork skin and peanuts, and it’s just as tasty as that sounds. Order one for the table to share.
Mee Kati Isan (Rice Noodles With Ground Pork Peanut Curry)
This is, as far as we can tell, the mildest noodle dish on the menu. Tell anyone who’s worried about dishes being too spicy to order this. You have more important things to attend to.
Laab Ped Udon (Spicy Duck Salad)This is one of the lighter things on the menu. By light, we just mean not covered in noodles and sauce. This is still a duck salad. The flavor is good, but it’s not one of our favorite things here.
Khao Soi Nuer
There’s not a lot not to love about any khao soi – it’s a super rich curry noodle soup. But Ugly Baby’s is incredible. It’s also very spicy, which only gets more intense the faster and faster you try to eat this. Remember to breathe.
Kanom Jean Kiew Warn Gai (Rice Vermicelli With Spicy Green Chicken Curry)
This bowl of green curry is pretty spicy, and also pretty tasty. But if you’re between the two, you should absolutely focus on the Khao Soi instead.
Khoong Muk Kai Kem (Shrimp, Squid, & Salted Egg Yolk)
This is one of the simplest dishes we’ve had here, but it’s excellent. Fresh shrimp and squid, tossed with lots of chile and salted egg. Get it if you like seafood.
Kah Moo Palo (Five Spice Pork Leg Stew)A giant pork leg with some of the most flavorful, most tender meat we’ve ever tried. Don’t leave without getting this – even if it’s just two of you. Even if you’re by yourself. You’ll just have leftovers…maybe.
