Posted on

Thai restaurant Farmhouse Kitchen has found a new home in Menlo Park.

On Wednesday, chef-owner Kasem “Pop” Saengsawang and co-owner Ling Chatterjee launched their soft opening, where they have begun to offer indoor and patio dining in addition to takeout and delivery.

An imaginative interior has been set up inside the space at 1165 Merrill St. where golden chandeliers hang over a long dining table and colorful flowers adorn the walls.

ALSO: We shadowed a restaurant server for a full shift. This is their new normal.

Regulars of the Oakland and San Francisco locations know that the attention to detail inside the restaurant transfers over to the food itself. The Menlo Park location will have a similar menu to the Oakland and S.F. locations; you can find its vibrant blue rice served with the popular Hat Yai fried chicken.
