Time Out NY Don"t complain about your own tiny kitchen until you"ve seen the one at this pint-size Thai home-cooking joint--which looks like a studio apartment converted into a restaurant. A divider between the stove and a half-dozen tables, plus a few kitschy decorations, is all that separates the cook from the diners. Fantastic tom kha soup, wickedly delicious curries and tender grilled pulled pork compensate for the informality. You"ll feel as if you"ve been invited over for dinner, and it"s almost as good a deal: Appetizers cost around $5, and you won"t pay much more than $10 for an entrée.
