A tiny doorway on Ludlow Street take you through a stairway inside this Thai restaurant, serving Filipino, Thai, and Southeast Asian cuisine, called Kuma Inn.
King Phojanakong is the chef-owner of two of NYC’s favorite restaurants, Kuma Inn in Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Umi Nom in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
With experience in a few respected restaurants such as Daniel and The Grocery, he offers several signature dishes on the menu, from a yellowfin tuna tartare to grilled salmon. The original menu is filled with a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables, but it changes often depending on the Season.
Oh! "Kumain", in filipino, means "to eat"…and why not, right?!
