I remember from the last time we were in Copenhagen that after awhile we were craving something besides the standard fare so I made a reservation at Kiin Kiin. I took a few of Emily's friends out with us for the evening. I was expecting a casual meal with some pad even though I knew the restaurant had one Michelin star. It did not really occur to me that the place would be so fancy. Emily told me it is the only one star Thai restaurant in the world. It was quite a meal.
There are no decisions to be made. They bring you the menu for the night. The only decision that we had to make is if we wanted a wine pairing with our meal. We decided to go for it as why make any decisions at this point. Before we began with any wine they started us off with a simple green tea just to cleanse our mouths.
These sausages came out with a glass top over it covered with smoke. The idea was to smell the aroma that you would if you were walking down the streets of Chiang Mai. Once the smoke cleared there were sausages stuffed with pork cracklings.
This was the main course so it gives you an idea how small each portion was. It was the wine that killed us. Sesame glazed ribs that fall off the bone roaste with a 5 spice sauerkraut. Served alongside was one piece of grilled cauliflower on top of a cauliflowre puree. Served with a Petite Shiraz from Paso Robles California.
What an experience. Much more than any of us bargained for but it was really nice hanging with Em's friends and hearing about their experiences. We certainly stood out as the chef came out a few times to talk to us. It really was fun.
