Profile

Since Sripraphai brought its fiery curries to Queens, the borough’s roster of excellent Thai restaurants has grown significantly to include, among many others, Chao Thai, Khao Kang, and the esteemed Ayada. The action has primarily been happening in Elmhurst’s booming Thai Town, so Thai Diva Cuisine is a welcome addition for local larb freaks living in Sunnyside. The small restaurant is practically hidden on a quiet street, tucked away from busy Queens Boulevard, and during the day is kept dim and shady. The main menu is typically extensive, with a broad range of dishes including pineapple curry, diva ribs, and pad phrik king but turn your attention to the inset of Northern Thai specialties. The owners don’t hold anything back here, serving dishes that are unapologetically sour and spicy. There’s a heaping of grilled fermented pork and pork skin sausage, moist and punchy, and a fritter of sweet potato, taro, and banana blossom that’s well-fried and pleasantly soft on the inside. (It’s a great drinking snack, but beer must be procured from the bodega across the street.) The bamboo-shoot salad, served, like a lot of dishes, with pork rinds on the side, is a refreshing respite from all the meat. But best of all might be a ground-pork larb made with fried garlic. It’s a spicy wallop of flavor, the kind of thing that you’ll keep eating long after you’re full.
