The Tyger is from the people behind Chinese Tuxedo, and like that Chinatown party restaurant, this pan-Asian spot in Soho has big booths filled with groups drinking colorful cocktails in a more colorful dining room. But unlike its sibling spot, the food at The Tyger will blow you away. From Phnom Penh fried chicken with lime and white pepper dipping sauce, to spicy curry loaded with crispy confit duck, and a not-quite-liquid, not-quite-solid coffee egg tart, everything on the menu is absolutely excellent. Bring a group, sit at a table near the retractable floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to Centre Street, and order as much of the menu as you can, colorful cocktails included.
