A new, family-run Thai restaurant is scheduled to open near London Bridge this week. Big Hospitality reports that siblings Bank, Roselyn, and Shakris Inngern will launch the all-new Kin + Deum on Thursday 12 July — situated at Crucifix Lane, close to London Bridge in Bermondsey.
The family says the restaurant will be “a curation of fresh, wholesome Thai dishes, combining local ingredients with authentic traditions, continuously inspired by the local appetite of Bangkok.”
A large menu — which differs slightly between lunch and dinner — is separated into seven main sections: Starters, soups, salads, house dishes, curries, noodles, Thai fried rice. Among a number of traditional “house dishes” are:
- The Himmaparn — a nutty stir-fry of crisped chicken, cashew nuts, red onions, peppers and dried red chillies;
- Bangkok’s Gra Pow — Stir-fried minced pork with bird’s eye chillies, garlic, peppers, red onions and basil leaves
- Country side Pork Belly — From the Southern province of Thailand, a curry of tender pork belly, Thai herbs and coconut milk
- Honey Duck Coriander — Roasted duck slices in a marinade of honey and garlic
As well as a number of drinking snacks and a special prawn pad Thai, the restaurant will offer the likes of the “staple Northern Thai” Chiang Mai Chicken Kao Soy — A yellow curry soup of soft egg noodles, red shallots, pickled greens and lime, topped with crispy noodles.
Kin + Deum joins a host of other ambitious Thai restaurants that have opened within the last three years in the capital — Supawan, Som Saa, Smoking Goat, Kiln, Greyhound Cafe, and Farang have been celebrated alongside the likes of Singburi and Begging Bowl in recent years.
London Bridge, too, has seen welcomed a number of new restaurants in the past 12 months: Pique-Nique, Londrino, Santo Remedio and Tortilleria El Pastor have all given new reason to visit the neighbourhood.
