Manhattan – Flatiron District


15 E 17th St between Fifth Ave and Broadway
Manhattan, NY


Time Out NY Sorting through the Pan-Asian muddle at this attractive eatery has its rewards. The Malaysian dishes--hidden among middling Thai and sushi--are all generously portioned and assertively spiced. You won"t find a more genuine curry laksa{/I}--the traditional noodle soup with fish balls, fried tofu, basil and mint--this side of Chinatown. Nasi lemak,{/I} a smorgasbord of fiery veggies and proteins in miniature stacks around coconut rice, is even more potent, with no tempering for the Western palate. Instead of pandering to the takeout crowd, the restaurant ought to let its Malaysian heritage take center stage.
