You’ll find a temporary break from the hustle and bustle of midtown at Dee Daa; the “balanced Thai to-go” joint was clearly designed with bustling commuters in mind. The spot emphasizes “good food that’s good for you,” evidenced by omnipresent calorie counts and a glass case of the visually appealing ingredients in the dishes, such as mushroom-esque bael fruit and knotty galangal, each displayed in its own window proclaiming its health benefits. There are four types of mains—noodles, curry, rice, and stir-fry—and the majority of dishes can be made vegetarian or gluten-free. The food is solid, but it has some faults. The pad-see-ew’s noodles are soft without being gummy, and the kale is flavorful—but the hunks of chicken are oversize and slightly dry. The tangy, spicy ginger stir-fry contains surprisingly fresh vegetables, but be prepared for a strong taste of ginger. Skip overpriced sides like the vegetable spring rolls and grab one of the four flavorful teas, like the tart rosella, on your way back to the office.
