Kin Kao Thai Kitchen

Thai in Commercial Drive

An austere, white-walled interior belies the warm service and spicy menu at this mod Thai restaurant. Share a few plates between you (don't miss the deep-fried crispy pork belly) or dive straight into the excellent red-curry duck, with its sweet pineapple and coconut flavors. Booze is not an afterthought here, either (hence the growlers on shelves behind the counter.)

Look out for beers from Townsite or Brassneck to pair with your grub. Reservations not accepted.
