BAM! Here we are puttin’ a feed on at a great place called Khe-Yo located on Duane Street in the Tribeca section of Manhattan, New York Citaaay. The head guy is a dude called Phet. . .he is from Laos, and he wants everyone to experience fine versions of the food from his homeland. Lao cuisine has arrived in the big city, and I gotta tell you this stuff is GOOD. We gobbled tasty items like chili prawns, red snapper cooked in a banana leaf, dumplings, soups, brussels sprouts leaves, etc. and so on. . .everything absolutely delicious. To wash everything down they have a full bar with a variety of whiskeys to choose from, cold draught beers, and a totally reasonable wine list. And best of all, the staff here is chilled-out and extremely helpful. . .jaaaa!! This place is a winner.
Phet used to work with Marc Forgione before ‘Forge’ helped him start his own place. . .in fact, Khe-Yo (which means “green” in Lao, by-the-way) is located right around the corner from Marc Forgione’s restaurant. . .so it is easy for these fabulous chefs to keep in touch with each other and monitor the progress of both of their bastions of fine food.
I send you mouth-watering and eye-opening vibes from Khe-Yo. . .feel them. . .they are a doorway to a little-visited section of Southeast Asia and her cuisine.
