Hi, I'm mathilde

What’s delicious and spicy with the option of a boozy secret menu item? Fish Cheeks NYC is your answer.

If you asked me what my favorite food in the world is, I’ll 100000% say Asian food (besides Caribbean food)! I am NEVER disappointed whenever I adventure off to try different Asian foods, and Fish Cheeks most certainly did NOT disappoint.

Forever in love with Thai food, I was very eager to try this place out with a great friend of mine. We started off with their Oysters which came with Nam Jim seafood and fried shallot, then devoured the Coconut Crab Curry and Grilled Branzino. Y’all— if you can’t handle spice, do not try these two plates! The curry was crazy spicy (to my liking!), while the Branzino was tamer, it still held its own.

We also ordered a secret menu item, the Spiked Thai Iced Tea It was my first time trying Thai Tea and I’m so happy it had a bit of booze to it. This drink is DANGEROUS, which made sense since I found out the tea was spiked with rum— while very strong, the Thai tea flavor stuck out and was definitely *chef’s kiss* delicious. Overall, this is a 12.6 out of 10.

In case anyone wants to make this at home, I found a pretty solid recipe for the Spiked Thai Iced Tea

Here’s what you need to make your homemade Boozy Thai Tea

  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 cup Thai Tea (“Number One” brand, it’s a red bag and gold bag at almost every Asian grocery)
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Condensed Milk
  • Evaporated Milk (to taste)
  • 2.5 oz Rum

Now here’s how to make it…

Boil water, add tea. Add sugar, reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let liquid cool. Strain with nut bag, tea strainer, or cheese cloth (really whatever you got). Add evaporated milk for extra sweetness. Build in Collins glass with ice, rum, top with Thai tea. Finish off with evaporated milk for that layered look.
