Thursday night we had dinner at Kin Shop, chef/owner Harold Dieterle’s take on Thai food, and a long-time favorite of ours. As always, the food was delicious. There were several interesting specials, including steamed clams with sour sausage and grilled octopus, which we had for appetizers. They were really well spiced and perfectly cooked. For the main course, we had the goat massaman curry and a khao soi of guinea hen, along with a side of sticky rice. The khao soi was a very welcome addition to the regular menu. It is done in the Northern Thai style, with fried noodles and a coconut curry sauce.
They did not have Beer Lao, which is what we like best with Thai food, so we tried Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale, which was quite good. The sourness offset the spiciness of the food very nicely.
