ASTORIA, QUEENS – An Astoria restaurant has been named one of the “most exciting” places to get Thai food in all of New York City, according to a recently updated list.
The Eaters List, which includes 28 exciting Thai restaurants in the five boroughs, includes Pye Boat Noodles, an Astoria restaurant known for its noodles (as the name suggests).
Pye Boat Noodle, located at 35-13 Broadway, is one of six Queens Thai restaurants on the list. There are also a handful of Brooklyn Thai restaurants and more than 10 Manhattan-based restaurants named in the Eater Roundup.
Eater reviewer Robert Sietsema said that Pye Boat Noodle, named after the oars used to paddle along Thai canals, serves noodles “similar to those served by boat vendors.” He recommends the âpork boat noodles,â which are âauthentically thickened with pork blood,â but if you prefer your bloodless noodles, there are plenty of other noodle choices.
According to Sietsema, other highlights include the ‘yen ta fo’, which includes an assortment of seafood, and the ‘bamee phoo moo dang hand’, which are egg noodles with pork belly – according to the company’s own. Sietsema’s estimate is âa very rich dishâ.
Other restaurants that made the list included two other Northwest Queens restaurants in Woodside: Thai Nara Halal, at 64-02 35th Avenue, and Sripraphai, at 64-13 39th Avenue.
