We Tried It: Khe-Yo in Tribeca

Khe-Yo currently tops our list of where to eat in NYC, and food you’ve just got to try right now. It’s another amazing restaurant by Marc Forgione, who partnered up with Chef Soulayphet “Phet” Schwader to bring their fresh culinary vision to Manhattan. This recent newcomer serves up Laotian-inspired South Asian cuisine that is so, SO good! You will fully appreciate their tasty dishes if you’re a fan of spicy and flavorful food. The staff is super friendly while the atmosphere is cool and cozy. (Coming from us, you can consider that a great compliment!) Giving the space that classic TriBeCa touch, you’ll find exposed brick walls and simple contemporary decor. We really love the elephant mural that’s featured within the setting, too…


A must have at Khe-yo is the sticky rice. You eat it with your hands after dipping the rice into their spicy, and very addictive “Bang Bang” sauce. It’s seriously better than ANY bread basket! Then, try the Roasted Kabocha Squash (laap-eu). Our first thought was, we’ve never had anything like it! It has the perfect combination of textures and flavors that surprise you. We also recommend the Crunchy Coconut Rice. Served with spicy Kaffir lime sausage and baby iceberg lettuce, the entree is delicious, and filling without giving you that heavy feeling. The downside (if we had to consider one) is that their current menu is small, with just a few specials that change daily – and so, we say that only because we want more. We absolutely LOVE this place!
