Time Out says
This Southeast Asian concept started in owner Nguyen Tran's apartment and is still buzzing due to frequent relocations, pot-starring pop-ups and a sporadically sophomoric sense of humor á la the popular crispy tofu balls ($6.50). Fortunately, the creative and ever-changing menu of mashed-up regional recipes is seriously on-point. Starry Kitchen is a favorite among critics and cutting-edge diners alike who nearly have to duke it out to secure a table for plates of XO fried rice topped with house-cured pork belly ($15), double-fried chicken wings ($7.50) or the signature Singaporean spicy crab ($MP).
