Farmhouse Kitchen

Thai chef Kasem "Pop" Saengsawang owns several solid restaurants in San Francisco, including the breakfast-centric Sweet Maple and the Asian fusion spot Kitchen Story, but his newest project Farmhouse Kitchen is the one to miss at your peril. Kitchen may be a common name at Saengsawang's restaurants, but the truth is that he really does make you feel at home with his cooking, especially here as he makes dishes from his homeland. The menu is intimidatingly large and has several highlights that successfully fuse classic with modern Thai sensibilities, but you have to order some blue rice (given a vibrant hue by butterfly pea flowers, which is often used to make blue tea) and the Las Vegas-esque dessert platter, which combines ice cream, sticky rice and other treats that are perfect for marking a birthday or just to celebrate getting through another day in the city.
