Opening Pakpao Thai chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin will soon have a mini restaurant empire on his hands. He's already got Bite City Grill in Fort Worth, and soon he'll open three locations of Kin Kin Urban Thai.
The previously announced first location is slated to join Bite in Fort Worth's West 7th district come February, to be followed by two Dallas locations: an Oak Lawn location in March or April and one at Preston and Forest in North Dallas, slated to debut this summer. (As CultureMap's Teresa Gubbins reported yesterday, Kin Kin Oak Lawn is taking over the space just vacated by Tex-Mex chain Cyclone Anaya's.)
Per a press release, Kin Kin translates to "let's eat" or "eat up," and the self-described "innovative" concept will feature "vibrant and modern" flavor profiles. If the smashing success of Uptown's CrushCraft is any indication, Dallas is clearly hungry for fresh takes on Thai food.
