This nicely turned out downtown eatery—a decided Instagram staple—is more than just a pretty face. The owners work diligently to create an inviting experience that offers a respite from the day’s chaos. We’re hard-core Thai curry fans and have found a rainbow of experiences here to challenge and delight. Novices should perhaps start with the ethereal green curry, which offers a buttery coconut sauce gently punched up with chile, citrus, and onion and anchored by chunky chicken. Not up for curry? Try a bowl of tom yum soup, bright with basil and accessorized by decent-sized shrimp. Talented mixologists offer tempting cocktails, and weekends often bring live music.
Kaitod Thai Kitchen
Kaitod takes on downtown Laredo, one Instagram post and bowl of curry at a time.
The new restaurant is indicative of the changes happening in the city, where former residents are returning and bringing new ideas from their travels.
