Farmhouse Kitchen… Best Thai Restaurant in SF

  Posted by - April 22, 2017 - $$ (20-50)

Another day. Another discovery.

Except I’m a dollar short and a day late to this one.

Farmhouse Kitchen has been around for two years. TWO YEARS, AND IM JUST DISCOVERING THIS NOW?!

…. basically, they’ve become my favorite Thai place in town.

Spicy? YES PLZ. Just how i like it.

They’ve really nailed it down- from all the spices to the right ambiance to the presentation.

The restaurant is full of energy and filled with Instagram-worthy dishes (<— obviously very important to note lol).

What to order?

Get the fried chicken breast with blue rice, roti squares, sweet chili sauce and a rich yellow potato curry.

You can never go wrong with Tom Yum soup.


Chef’s special. Unfortunately you guys probably won’t be able to try this particular dish since the chef changes his specials daily. But whatever his special is? You should probably get it. This was honesty one of my favorite things on the menu. The noodles were cooked perfectly (actually, these were some of the best noodles I’ve had since coming back from Asia). The meat melted with every bite.

Just to add to the ambiance, they come around with worms and grasshoppers. I wasn’t bold enough to try it (I know, I’m a terrible food blogger #sorry #IveFailedYou) lol. But there’s just something about…. WORMS that doesn’t sound appealing to me?

Although… my friends did try it and said it had great flavor. So there yah go.

The only dish I wasn’t completely ecstatic about was the rice salad. Flavors were just OK.

THIS DESSERT PLATTER though…. OMG. If you’re going with a huge group, I’d highly suggest getting it all so you can try an assembly of Thai-inspired sweets. My favorite is the coconut ice cream- you won’t be disappointed.

To sum it all up:

From the chicken to the soup to the dessert, everything was executed with extreme precision.

There’s so much flavor packed into each bite, yet not overwhelming or too salty.

It’s the perfect place for a casual date night or dinner with friends. I’d definitely recommend coming here with at least 4 people so you guys can order family-style and try as much as you can.

    It’s good, but my favorite soup in the world, Tom Kha, is WAY too sweet at Farmhouse.

      That’s also one of my favorite soups! Do you have a favorite Thai place in the city you recommend? :)

    Yes! Totally agree with you. Love this place and that vibe. Kinda glad I didn’t see them bringing around the worms and grasshoppers. Never tried them in Thailand why would I try it here. lol.
