It was my 30th birthday this weekend and in the spirit of a new decade and a desire to try something new, we checked out the new whole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant, Little Serow, a project of Komi chef, Johnny Monis.
We waited 2.5 hours.
The good news is that you can put your name down and then they’ll text you 10 minutes out from your seating. And since it’s located below Komi, you’re in a great spot of town so there’s plenty of places to enjoy a drink and a good conversation as you wait.
And I must say it was worth it.
The northern Thai menu changes weekly but the things that remain the same are shared plates spiked with enough spice to make you weep.
There was a mint, lime-infused flash-fried tofu dish that was the best thing I’ve eaten in years. (And I don’t profess a love for tofu)
There was a green shrimp curry adorned with crunchy noodles that I almost drank like it was the nectar of the gods.
And to top it off, a very low key dessert that was absolutely perfect — sticky coconut rice. Delish.
Go. You won’t be disappointed.
