Ugly Baby

OPENED23 DAYS AGO

Fans of the now closed restaurant in Red Hook, Kao Soy, will be happy to hear that the chef from the spot has opened his first Thai restaurant of his own in Carroll Gardens – Ugly Baby. Just like at his previous restaurant, the focus of the food will be on offering a truly authentic Thai food experience – with plenty of fire and spice! We’ve some recent hot openings  with Samui in Brooklyn and Fish Cheeks in lower Manhattan but now we have a new contender and, after Pete Wells awarded his previous spot, Kao Soy, with one star, we have high hopes for this one.

The Spot:

The 20-seat restaurant sits at 407 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens and is the first restaurant from ex Kao Soy chef, Sirichai Sreparplarn. But, just like at his previous spot, Sreparplarn, aims to show diners how food is truly experienced in Thailand but he won’t be focusing on just one part of the country, Ugly Baby showcases flavors from all over, including four different regions of Thailand; the north, the northeast, central, and south.

The Food:

The menu includes dishes such as tom som pla kra pong (a central-syle red snapper with ginger and tamarind), kang hoh (a northern-style pork shoulder with red curry paste, spare ribs, and mungbean noodles), and kua kling (a southern-style beef shank curry that’s described as “brutally spicy”). Most dishes come accompanied by a plate of raw vegetables to balance out the fiery flavors.

The Damage:

Most dishes are $25 and under.

In A Nutshell:

There’s nothing ugly about this authentic Thai restaurant – unless you can’t handle the heat…
