Almost three years ago, food blogger Pim Techamuanvivit opened her Thai restaurant, Kin Khao, inside the Parc 55 hotel. Since then, she’s attracted adventuresome diners looking for creative and lesser-known Thai dishes. It’s a casual, bustling place that isn’t defined by its decor, but rather its spicy and playful approach to food and cocktails. Lunch prices are more in line with dinner at mom and pop Thai places, so if you want to try a Michelin-star destination without spending too much, opt for that instead of dinner, which averages around $30 to $50 per person.
