Soon you can chat with him through the open kitchen at Pakpao Thai in the Design District. Tila replaces opening chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin who is now at Bite in Fort Worth. Tila will join Richard Ellman, co-owner along with his wife Tiffanee of Apheleia Restaurant Group as chef/partner.
“Team Tila” (which consists of Jet and two of his protégés) will bring their A-game later this month. The menu will change to reflect some of team will guide changes to the Tila’s signature dishes such as Khao Soi Noodles, Sticky Rice with Mangoes, Moo Palo (five spiced pork belly), and Roti Dessert (Indian flat bread with coconut ice cream and condensed milk).
