The cooler Fall weather made me hankering for some soup. I’ve been eating this Coconut Curry Noodle Soup with Duck ($12) at Sage. It’s really good. Creamy with the right amount of spice. The duck is pretty surprisingly good and tender. I’ve ordered it with egg noodles which compliment it well. There’s a crispy noodle nest topping that’s good dipped in the creamy broth.
Next time I’m going to try to see if they can substitute the noodles for vegetables. I’d like to cut back on the carbs. I did ask a couple of times if their Tom Kha coconut soup was the same broth and they said yes. But it isn’t. I ordered it one night and it’s different. Different color and taste. Maybe Tom Kha is the base of the coconut curry soup without the curry? But it’s not the same.
My impression of Sage previously was that it was just another average New York trendy-looking Thai restaurant. But this coconut curry soup really hits the spot. My favorite thing I’ve eaten in October.
