Chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin is back, this time with his own new restaurant Kin Kin in Oak Lawn. The first opened in Fort Worth and in the near future four restaurants will be open in the DFW area. The appetizers are good here, with beef jerky, chicken meatballs, pork sate and handmade dumplings all providing the perfect foil for a cold and crisp lager. Main courses offer what you would expect for a casual neighborhood Thai restaurant, including curry by color with your choice of proteins. With two large dining rooms, a patio and other seating area, Kin Kin is a restaurant you can physically get lost in, but you’ll have a hard time getting lost in bold flavors or adventurous cooking here.

    Our food critic thinks chefs should start one restaurant when they're 22 and work there until they die and only open a second outpost if there's a nice space with lots of parking in the afterlife. But that's boring! So instead, chef...
