Pure Thai Cookhouse is one of the few authentic Thai eateries in Manhattan (the rest of them are all in Queens). Housed amongst several noodle shops and Thai restaurants on 9th Avenue, Pure Thai’s owners are David and Vanida Bank who also own Recipe and Land Thai Kitchen.

Pure Thai is their ode to their hometown’s street style eats and homemade noodles. This tiny spot squeezes in about 35 people and always has a line waiting outside.

The menu offers an awesome array of signature small plates that are big on flavor. All the noodle recipes are from within the family and are a must try. My favorite was the Nakorn Sawan which has a spectacularly delicate five spiced broth.

I also really love their “Beef with Turmeric” and “Thai Style Omelette” which is so common in Thailand but not so much here. Don’t skip dessert – their “Mango with Sticky Rice” is just outstanding.

Pure Thai Cookhouse offers plenty of superbly spiced dishes at an awesome price point and definitely warrants a visit/revisit/ visit/revisit!
