Kin Khao is literally “eat rice” in Thai and is a common expression which means “to eat” or “to have a meal”. So, if you are selling Thai Beef Noodles in Chinatown Point, why not call yourself Kin Cow – inviting patrons to eat cow, or at least nicely cooked cuts of a cow.
Located on level 2 of Chinatown Point retail podium among a cluster of food and beverage outlets, Kin Cow occupies a small open space. There is no wall separating the restaurant from the corridor of the mall. The interior decor is neat and pleasant. However, the space between tables are narrow enough for you to take the drink from the next table by mistake.
Kin Cow offers traditional kuay teow neua, or Thai Beef Noodles, with a choice of quality cuts of imported beef. You also get to pick your noddles and any other addons. Kin Cow also has a fair selection of noodle and rice dishes, side dishes and desserts. Here are pictures of sections of Kin Cow’s menu.
We ordered a bowl of short rib with Thai glass noodle dry ($12.90) and a bowl of beef brisket with bee hoon soup ($11.90). Fresh lemongrass tea was $3.90.
The short rib came in slices in a bowl of broth with plenty of green vegetables. The glass noodles were tossed in a light sauce and served in a separate bowl. The savoury broth was rich and flavourful with clear hints of herbs and spices. The thin glass noodles absorbed the sauce and broth well. Add a bit of chilli and the whole dish would become even more enjoyable.
The beef brisket with bee hoon soup was also delicious. The chunks beef was really tender and tasty. The bee hoon was soft but not overcooked.
If you are a Thai beef noodle lover and you can’t go to Bangkok too often for your beef treat, Kin Cow at Chinatown Point may be a convenient place to get your fix. You can get a good beefy meal at Kin Cow; and if your dining companion is not mad about cow there are sufficient non beef dishes to keep him happy for a few repeat visits.
