The East Village has plenty of reliable but unexciting Southeast Asian options. Some lure patrons with funky, futuristic décor (SEA), others with cross-dressing servers with a penchant for karaoke (Lucky Cheng’s). Few depend on a menu of consistently flavorful dishes. Enter brother-sister team Jimmy and Judy Tu, who do just that by spicing up fresh organic produce and naturally raised meats with fiery chili and Thai basil. Tender Heritage pork nearly falls off the bone into a pool of slightly spiced coconut juice. Stuffed “angel” wings are deboned and packed with Berkshire pork, mushrooms, carrots, and glass noodles before they’re deep-fried. The Zen-like space, decorated with watermelon-red walls, staggered candles, and some cylindrical tubing, causes minimal distraction from the food.Prix-Fixe
