South Brisbane's warmly welcoming restaurant specialising in northeastern Thai food.
Chef Boo is quite possibly the most adorable chef in all of Brisbane. Growing up in the Isan region of northeastern Thailand, Bussakorn (Boo) developed her love of food under the tutelage of her mother, who sold traditional meals directly from the family home.
The menu at Boo's Kitchen is infused with her signature wit and warmth, with each item carrying a little story to help new diners select their dishes. Our top picks for mains: the drunken noodles with prawns and scallops (allegedly created many years ago by a drunk chef) and the wagyu steak crying tiger (with an eye-watering spicy dipping sauce). Boo's signature seafood dish is the soft shell crab with yellow curry (boo means crab in Thai), which is topped with shallots, onions and carrots and doused with yellow curry sauce. Pro tip: add a roti canai to your order to mop your plate.
