The first review I heard of Kin Shop was from a Thai food blogger who takes our clients out on incredible foodie excursions in Bangkok and Phuket. When I asked her what her favorite Thai restaurant was in NYC, she told me about Kin Shop.
A “reinvention” of Thai cooking by Chef Harold Dieterlie and Alicia Nosenzo, Kin Shop is a simple affair on 12th and 6th with some really delicious food that includes traditional dishes, reinterpreted traditionals and wholly new tastes, all meant to be shared. Unless you know the dishes well, it is a good idea to consult with the servers so that you have a good balance textures, flavors and spices. If you are a hot/spicy junkie, the spicy duck laab salad is a must. Other favorites of ours were the grilled shrimp with an incredibly delicious peanut sauce, braised goat and Massaman curry and the wonderful fried pork and crispy oyster salad.
Reservations are hard to get so book in advance.
