If you’ve ever spent any time in Honolulu, it’s inevitable that you will have had occasion to dine at Keo’s. If you haven’t then you’ve really missed out. Since 1977 Keo Sananikone’s namesake establishment has been singled-out for its exquisite Thai cuisine on the pages of Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Food and Wine, GQ, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Newsweek; and it becomes evident why, the second you enter the premises and are hit with an olfactory version of the Rapture.
When asked about the secret to his restaurant’s decades-long popularity, Sananikone said “It’s not from doing extraordinary things; it comes from consistently doing the ordinary thing extraordinarily well.”
Well, if dishes like the Evil Jungle Prince with Chicken, the Thai-style Crispy Whole Fresh Snapper, and an especially piquant Tom Yum Soup with Chicken are any indication, the culinary creations coming out of the kitchen at Keo’s are prepared extraordinarily well, indeed. As to their being ordinary - I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.
