Puff Cha 04-07-2014

Location: 457 50th St.
Time: 12pm
People: AP and myself

Feelings: Ever since I discovered Puff Cha in Hell's Kitchen last week, my coworkers and I have been regulars, mostly due to their tasty $6.95 lunch special but also for the coquettish-cool girl that works behind the counter. She had me at her Leann Rimes vintage t-shirt. Who can really rock that shirt besides maybe Anna del Russo and her?

Puff Cha is not just another Thai spot in the area. Formerly occupied by a scrumptious cookie spot, Ruby et Violette, the space is quaint and personable. This is an ideal establishment for coffee, over 40 kinds of tea, desserts as well as the main attraction, Thai puff pastries. Deep fried dough is filled with various flavors, both savory and sweet. There are 12 different flavors to choose from.

Asides from the puff and grease-soothing tea, my favorite is their rice noodle soup. It is fresh, full of garlic, and the broth is hearty and excellent. Definitely try their lunch special today, and don't forget to order a nice, aromatic pot of Pu-Erh tea while you wait.
