Kin Khao


Kin Khao serves delicious Thai food that stays true to its origin, made with seasonal produce and sustainably raised or caught meats and seafood. In Thailand, to eat is to eat rice. So, colloquially, when we say “kin khao” we mean “to eat” or “let’s eat” Pim Techamuanvivit Proprietress Born and raised in Bangkok, Pim took a circuitous route through the world of food–from writing, teaching, to jam making [ahem, award-winning jam making]–before finding her way back home to the food she grew up with. Longing for Thai food of richer quality and variety in the U.S., Pim is now on a mission to liberate her beloved Thai cuisine from the tyranny of peanut sauce. Her Thai cooking has earned effusive praise from world-class chefs like Alain Passard and Rene Redzepi. Kin Khao is her first (and hopefully not last) restaurant project.
