The other day I was invited to visit Kuni’s Thai Cuisine to see what they’re all about, and to experience their fabulous food firsthand. Man was I excited, because I had been dying to check it out! They exceeded all my hopes for the new Thai spot in Spokane. My first experience could not have been more enjoyable. The chef/owner, Kuni, and her family were amazing and went above and beyond to make my experience wonderful. Y’all need to check it out!
The Food: Kuni is at her restaurant every day creating her favorite dishes, the flavors of her childhood and the food she’s been eating all of her life. There are stories behind every plate of food, and it made me even more excited to eat them after hearing the history of each dish. On this day, she spoiled us and brought out nearly everything on the menu for us to try. Because there’s so much and Instagram hates long posts, I’ll just highlight my favorites! The Fresh Rolls with shrimp were awesome. Fresh veggies with rice noodles, Asian herbs, wrapped in soft rice paper and served with sweet chili & peanut sauce. Super good! I also really liked what they call Golden Pouches. These were flaky flower-shaped pastry stuffed with ground chicken, potatoes, onions, carrots, and green peas. They’re served with chili sauce, and they were fantastic. My absolute favorite dish of the day was a new one coming to the menu - the rack of lamb! It was cooked perfectly, seasoned really well, tender, and served in their signature spicy sauce. I couldn’t get enough of this dish, I could live in that sauce! I loved everything else I got to try, too, these are just the ones I had to tell you about. The food was straight up amazing while also being light and refreshing [I ate way more than I should have and felt awesome afterwards]. Kuni’s is going stick around for a long time.
The Accessibility: Kuni’s is located in a beautiful new building with gorgeous decor, lots of space to move around, and no choke points. It’s another great example of people understanding that there’s more people than just those walking. I definitely felt welcome and comfortable in my wheelchair just like all the other people.
GO EAT AT KUNI’S!
