At his restaurant, Issaya Siamese Club in Bangkok, Chef Ian Kittichai shows us how to make Kanom Krok: Coconut Hot Cakes Topped with Chicken, Chili Jam, Shredded Ginger and Kaffir Lime. Kanom Krok are a popular street food, and have a similar flavor profile to Thai coconut soup. This approachable dish can add a ton of depth to your menu.
