I’ve already visited Pukk Thai twice since coming to NYC. In a city with such a variety of restaurants, that’s a big deal! Vegetarian Thai food that tastes like it’s really made with meat? I’m so there! Plus, the lunch specials are amazing. You get clear soup filled with veggies and mushrooms, a choice of starter, plus a main dish, like a curry or noodles… all for around six bucks.
Left: Pad Thai with “duck”. Right: Spring Rolls and Yellow Curry “chicken” lunch special.
