A new casual Thai rotisserie chicken concept, Kai Yang, is coming to Bloomfield Avenue in September.
Opening Kai Yang is chef/owner< Sheree Sarabhaya of Spice II, Montclair and Boon Thai Kitchen, Livingston. Growing up in Bangkok, Sarabhaya enjoyed freshly prepared Thai market street foods such as kai yang, which translates to grilled chicken. The organic chickens served at Kai Yang will be rotisserie grilled and accompanied by traditional papaya salad, sticky rice side and dipping sauces with variations that include pork or beef.
Kai Yang will also feature several signature Thai dishes from Spice II, which Sarabhaya plans to close at the end of August. The new 1,100 square foot, 40+ seat space will evoke the vibrant colors and feel of a Thai street market.
Kai Yang is located at 345 Bloomfield Avenue near The Wellmont Theater and will be open for lunch and dinner Wednesday-Monday (closed Tuesdays). Kai Yang is a BYOB.
