A new Thai restaurant, Khob Khun, has opened in the Inner Richmond, in the spot that has previously been a series of Chinese restaurants. I quite like it so far, in fact I’d go as far as saying it’s already the best Thai restaurant in the Inner Richmond, but what might make it worth the visit for people who don’t live in the Richmond is their breakfast.
It’s worth making a note of the decor: it is a huge improvement from all the previous tenants. Flowers and plants are everywhere, and while they clearly did not have much of a budget, they’ve transformed what has historically been a sterile restaurant space into something charming and homey.
Both Thai and Western breakfasts are available, in fact the brekkie menu is mostly Western: omelets and Benedicts and French toast and such. The Western stuff is similar to what you might find in an upmarket brunch spot; e.g., their sides of bacon are tarted up with maple syrup. The Thai brekkie item I like the most is a congee; there is also a fried rice w/ egg dish and a pork skewers dish, among other dishes I’ve not yet tries.
Regretfully, my discriminatory skills tend not to be refined enough to describe the food with great specificity, especially compared to other Onions (what is the demonym here? Onionites? Onionistas?), so I’ll pass that over in favor of a ton of photos.
