Kin Khao – Thai Eatery

Kin Khao – Thai Eatery

My love story with the Thai cuisine started not so long ago, but after trying my first green curry I fell hard for the strong aromatic components that Thai dishes compiles, and the spicy edge that is so characteristic of this cuisine  converted me into a spicy aficionado. 

So ever since I’ve been looking high and low to find a place that mimics the complexity and yet simplicity of the Thai food, and that gives the full experience in the dishes from the texture to the layer of flavours, smell and taste.

So whenever I’d eat at a Thai place it would feel like the food was a shadow of what real Thai cuisine is and what I cooking home was still better than what I was tasting eating out but this story totally changed when I paid a visit to the fairly new Kin Khao – Thai Eatery in Gent.
