Dallas gets a brand new option for pad thai and tom kha tonight with the opening of chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin's Kin Kin Urban Thai on Oak Lawn. The second location of Kin Kin takes over the former Cyclone Anaya's spot, adjacent to Green Papaya and Hypnotic Sushi; the first opened in Fort Worth's West 7th district last year.

Kin Kin's got much more to offer than just Thai takeout staples, though: Thretipthuangsin's menu has plenty of curveballs, including a bizarro burger with sticky rice patties subbing in for buns, Thai fried chicken bathed in sweet chili sauce, and a Southeast Asian take on the deep-fried bar snack known as Scotch eggs.

Thretipthuangsin just shuttered his other West 7th restaurant, Bite City Grill, but he's not showing any signs of slowing down: Another Bite will soon open at Richardson's CityLine development, and a third Kin Kin is slated to open at Preston and Forest in North Dallas in the very near future.
