Restaurant Buzz: Kin Kao Thai Kitchen



Comfort food from the 25-seat Kin Kao Thai Kitchen has warmed up the nondescript strip mall in which it resides. Bangkok native Tang Phoonchai (pictured) teamed with his wife, Min, and Terrence Feng to offer a menu of crave-worthy dishes reminiscent of his childhood. Starters such as deep-fried sour-cured pork ribs with cooked rice, kosher salt and garlic ($7) complement mains such as the signature Phat Thai, served with a choice of chicken or prawns as well as tofu, rice noodles and bean sprouts ($11). The simple theme is played out by local design firm Scott and Scott Architects, who installed a Douglas fir plywood bar washed with blue paint and soaped beech tables and chairs, which are bathed by the natural light shining through expansive windows.
