Khun Kay Thai Caf offers fast-casual version of khantoke
Diners can have a unique dining experience beginning Sunday, Aug. 19 at Khun Kay Thai Caf on Montrose, when it will start serving its own fast-casual version of khantoke.
A traditional khantoke dinner is popular for local people and visitors in northern Thailand. Khantoke features from four to a dozen dishes and is served to individuals on footed, elaborately-decorated trays. Guests typically sit on the floor and musicians sometimes perform during the dinner.
Khun Kay Thai Caf's co-owner and chef Kay Soodjai and staff put together a dinner menu that includes five Thai foods. The menu will change weekly and seasonally.
Beginning Sunday, the khantoke feast will include Thai chicken with vegetables, a summer orchard salad, white rice, a Thai dumpling and a trio of sticky rice samplings, each colored by a vegetable or spice.
Guests will not sit on the floor, but will be served on a large square tray with five square bowls. This special dinner is available only in the evenings. The cost is $8.95 for the entire meal.
Khun Kay Thai Caf is owned by Kay and Supatra Yooto, who closed the Golden Room Restaurant that they opened 30 years ago at 1209 Montrose. They replaced that establishment with the more casual Khun Kay Thai Caf at the same address.
Khun Kay Thai Caf is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Take-out with limited free delivery is available. Call 713-524-9614 or visit khunkaythaicafe.com.
