Despite all indications to the contrary (ludicrously long blog postings rambling on about food metaphors for polysyllabic paragraph after sub-clause-ridden sentence being one of them), sometimes I just don’t have all that much to say. Sometimes, I just go to a restaurant, think ‘hmm, that was nice’, and that’s about it. It doesn’t make it a bad restaurant. In fact, quite the opposite – if it was bad I’d have something to say. But it was good and I don’t.
Kinnaree was Friday night’s spontaneous post-wit-bier dinner spot. It’s a light, bright Thai restaurant in the Jordaan, serving the usual suspects plus a few less well-known Thai dishes. We had the mixed starter, which included pretty much the same appetisers as any mixed Thai starter, but tasted a lot better than others I’ve had. As mains, we shared a shrimp green curry and seared duck breast with peppercorns and garlic. Both very good, especially when washed down with a bottle of Basque rosé.
Kinnaree is reasonably priced, serving up reliable, better-than-average food. Maybe, just for once, that’s all I need to say.
