Siam 28
Authentic eats at Siam 28

On the Menu: “Thaipas” is what the folks at Siam 28 call it, or Thai-style tapas — but really, we’re talking smaller-portioned dishes that are meant to be divvied up across the table. Besides the snacks, you can also take your pick of salads, soups, curries, seafood, fried rice and noodle dishes.

Jeng: The platter of sauces that accompany the dishes are all deliciously and unapologetically feisty and sharp. On the Thaipas menu, the fried son-in-law eggs ($58) — think Scotch eggs, but Thai — go down like potato chips you just can’t stop eating. The fried rice with shrimp paste ($82) comes with easily separated kernels, each drenched in flavor. Remember to save room for the mango sticky pan-fried rice ($78)!

Not So Jeng: Siam 28 is not a huge space, so you can be involuntarily privy to other people’s conversations.

Great For: A casual meal, a mid-sized gathering.
