The Domain continues to grow, using established local businesses like East Side King’s Thai-Kun as building blocks. The Thai-centric food truck from the empire co-founded by Paul Qui (named one of the 10 best new restaurants in American by Bon Appetit in 2014) now has a brick-and-mortar location at the complex’s Rock Rose development (11601 Rock Rose Ave.).
The menu from Qui, Moto Utsunomiya and Thailand native Thai Changhtong features spicy Thai street food, with counter service at lunch and table service at dinner. Dishes include fermented pork sausage with cabbage and Thai chili, tamarind-glazed chicken wings, pad Thai, kao man gai, ground pork cooked with blood and toasted rice powder, and roasted chicken with coconut milk. The restaurant also serves beer, wine and sherry and sake-based cocktails created by the team at Qui
