My favorite local Thai restaurant serves the most delicious Thai Red Curry Soup with their lunch specials. Like most lunch special soups, there’s not much to it–broth and usually 4-5 cubes of tofu, about the same number of sliced mushrooms, and a scant teaspoon of thinly sliced scallions. But that’s okay, because the best part is the broth anyway. It’s a little bit spicy, a tiny bit sweet, and incredibly fragrant from the combination of coconut milk and red curry paste.
Madiba, Fort Greene | South African fare, a delicious combination of Malay, Indian, Dutch and English food. Sit back with a cold South African lager and enjoy the afro-pop beats. Recommended dish: Organic Peri Peri Chicken Wings.
