Hug Esan Thai (Woodside Ave & 78th St)

Ms. Sornphoom opened Hug Esan in July 2017... “We couldn’t find any real Isan food in our area,” Chiraporn said, “so we thought, ‘We will do the thing that we can make great.’ ”

This has become our go-to Thai place.  The article is good, and be aware they have a great menu and lunch specials.

I've been there twice now and some dishes are pretty good. But the last time I went, the real let down was the grilled chicken I ordered - it was served deep fried instead, completely lacking in flavor. A pity as I had high hopes for this place, I love food from Esan.
