If you live anywhere near Bushwick, use this casual Thai spot like a DJ uses house samples - often and skillfully. Tong’s dining room looks like a miniature Cost Plus World Market where someone might take a yoga class or read in a hammock, and the wooden structure around its partially-covered sidewalk patio is wrapped in string lights. The QR code menu has a big section dedicated to kub klaem, or small plates, and all thirteen of them deserve your undivided attention. So the next time you’re in Bushwick and need a casual spot to meet up with a few friends or have a luxurious solo dinner, stop by for some banana blossom pancakes and grilled octopus skewers covered in a chili lime cause you’ll wish was being sold by the bottle.
