NEW OPENINGS AND RETURNS
Isarn Thai Soul Kitchen
Isarn Thai Soul Kitchen, a popular local Thai franchise owned by Jennifer Politanont and Saravut Nawasangarun with locations in Kirkland and Lynnwood, debuted its first Seattle location in Ravenna on Wednesday. (The couple also opened the spinoff bar Kin Len Thai Night Bites in Fremont in fall 2019.) The new location is just down the street from JuneBaby and is open for limited indoor dining, outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery, serving the same Thai street food-inspired menu of dishes like deep-fried lemongrass wings, larb, Isarn-style sour pork sausage, and pork belly stew.
