Among the many eateries in Wan Chai, let me introduce you to the Thai restaurant “KIN KAO” that I visited today.

Thai Restaurant “KIN KAO”
Hong Kong is a place where you can enjoy various international cuisines. Today, I visited the Thai restaurant “KIN KAO”.
KIN KAO opens at 12:00 pm, and we entered a little after 12:05 pm. Most of the seats were already filled, and it was crowded. Since it’s not a fast-paced restaurant, it’s best to arrive right at the opening time.
The interior of the restaurant is not large but clean. The staff seemed very busy during lunchtime.
A great lunch deal with a drink included (HK$80) available on weekdays only (12:00 pm to 5:00 pm).
We ordered Menu C and F from the lunch menu and shared them.
Although it’s spicy, it’s a level of spiciness that even I, who isn’t good with spicy food, can eat. The rice is fluffy, and the sauce that has soaked into the bottom is delicious. The soup that came with this set is incredibly tasty! I loved the soup so much that I wanted a refill.
A spicy curry-flavored soup with noodles. It contains tender meat and sliced onions. It’s quite filling, and I was satisfied.
