Kin Shop

Drop in LunchboxNew York, NY

A genre of restaurant that is a little tough to find. My only other go-to restaurant in this Asian category, is Monsoon in Seattle, but that is Vietnamese and I have to go to Seattle to eat there. Kin Shop is Thai and in New York, but a higher level than your ma & pa restaurants. More exquisite ingredients and presentation with an American twist. The cocktails are also flavorful and deluxe.

A few lovely dishes we’ve had:
•Miang of Montauk Fluke lychees, shiso, chili jam & fried garlic
•Fried Pork & Crispy Oyster Salad: One of their staples. Definitey a must try.
•Spicy Duck Laab Salad: Probably the best Laab I’ve had in the states. It’s got a kick but it’s bursting with flavor.
•Red Snapper Green Curry-mussels, bok choy, pigeon peas, cashews, & siamese green curry: Great flavors.
•Steamed Sticky Rice-fish sauce, coconut milk & pandanus: A unique twist on such a simple dish.
