Thaiku 2: Less Fu Kun Wu, But More Authentic

It's baaaaack.

As previously reported, the former spice-laden gem of Ballard Ave. is once again in business — this time, in the old Gaspare space on Phinney Ridge, across from Stumbling Goat Bistro.

The new Thaiku promises more authentic Thai cuisine. In fact, according General Manager Unchalee "O" Ayucharoen:

At the mai (new) Thaiku, we're offering an authentic experience with food and culture that people would have to fly to Thailand for or go to a Thai family's house to taste.

There is also a mini version of Thaiku's celebrated apothecary bar, Fu Kun Wu. And according to the press release, the mostly women-run kitchen is led by chef Anne Sawvalak, who was born and bred in Bangkok.

Thaiku quietly opened last night, with no more bells and whistles than a simple Facebook message that read: "Pssst.. We're open now." The restaurant is open 7 days a week with happy hour and weekend lunch service starting the week of February 25.
