Buzz has been gradually building for chef Nutnisa Hoffman’s second Thai restaurant, Baramee Thai Bistro, which she developed with her husband, Douglas. In January, diners finally got a taste of Hoffman’s Northeastern-style Thai dishes when Baramee debuted in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.

A sister restaurant to Mali Thai Bistro in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Baramee features an all-female kitchen crew turning out traditional Thai dishes offered in four levels of heat. Pad ka prao is one of Hoffman’s favorite dishes at Baramee, featuring stir-fried ground beef, sweet basil leaves, green beans, ground chiles, garlic and house sauces served over rice and topped with a pan-fried egg.

To drink, Baramee serves classic Thai coffee, iced tea and bubble tea alongside a small wine and beer list.
