My all time favorite restaurant, Sripraphai, in Woodside Queens! 🤤
I’ve been coming here since about 2005, and I’ve never had a bad meal. Seriously.
While maybe unfair, I compare most restaurants to Sripraphai. It is the pinnacle of freshness, taste, and quality.
At any given time in a dish of theirs, you will have Cilantro, Mint, Fish Sauce, Peanuts, Cashews, and Thai Chilis all coming together to preform a wonderful dance in your mouth. 😏
In this great day at Sripraphai, I had Crispy Whole Red Snapper, with Chili Basil sauce. Hard to explain this dish...it’s just that good.
The Crispy Watercress Salad is a staple here and should be ordered with every meal. No lie. Deep fried Watercress, Cashews and ground Peanut, with Chicken, Shrimp, and Squid in an exceptional sauce. No exaggeration, quite possibly the meal I would request as my last if I were on Death Row. 😩⛓🔪
Next up is the Larb, a very fresh ground pork salad, with very light flavors.
Last but not least, Fried Soft Shell Crab with Chili Basil sauce. 🦀
This is the same sauce that came on the fish, and it compliments the briny flavors of the crab in an incredible way.
I wish this post was more descriptive, but the flavors that fly out this kitchen must be experienced first hand. There’s only one downside - you will never look at Thai food the same, and possibly denounce Pad Thai for the rest of your days. (And don’t worry, they have Pad Thai on the menu, just in case you can’t hang.)
Thank you Sripraphai for bringing so much to the NYC food landscape. It truly wouldn’t be the same without you. Keep doing what you do! And shout out to my boy Peter, he works there. Great dude. 😄
