The 7 train sweeps past quite a few authentic Thai restaurants, but Zabb is worthy of particular attention from those who love to feel the burn. Spicy specialties from the chefs' home province of Isaan dominate the menu. Some dishes that originated in Northeastern Thailand, like som tum (green papaya salad) and larb (ground meat salad), have already become ubiquitous throughout the global Thai takeout diaspora, while those involving organ meats, like gay jub, are understandably more obscure. Obscure, but good, if one likes pig parts. The less adventurous might stick to the delightfully crispy whole fried fish or the DIY fun of the Laotian-style hot pots. Regardless, do as they do in Isaan and try using a gob of sticky rice as your primary utensil. Zabb is BYOB and it stays open until 2 am, making it a fine place for late night revelry.
