Do-or-die Bed-Stuy seems an unlikely choice for a candlelit Southeast Asian restaurant. But this handsome renovation of a former Laundromat from chef-owner King Phojanakong (Kuma Inn) fits right in. His rich, vivid interpretations of Thai and Filipino fare features bold, memorable flavors. Among them: crisp-skinned chicken wings topped with funky fish sauce and hot peppers, and caramelized sausages served alongside sticky rice. Umi Nom 433 DeKalb Ave between Classon Ave and Taaffe Pl, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn (718-789-8806)
