Owner Gene Kobboon's paintings and carvings line the walls of Thai Passion, where each dish is carefully and creatively prepared like a piece of fine art. The words covering the restaurant's menu directly correspond to a wide variety of colorful, edible masterpieces, including the gaeng dang curry, which bathes bamboo shoots, zucchini, and basil in red curry coconut milk mixed by the feet of rubber ducky ($10). Mimicking the napkins tightly folded on top of Thai Passion's tables, crispy won tons wrap around the pou-peersod spring rolls, stuffed with shrimp or tofu, leaf lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and cilantro ($3.50/two). Hot and sour fisherman soup sends nose-tickling wafts from the restaurant's open-air kitchen and is served in a large firepot, which may be reused to carry home friends stuffed from feasting ($14).

Thai Passion

When Gene Kobboon arrived in the United States in 1985, he initially sought a career as a commercial artist and took odd jobs in kitchens around Austin to help pay his way through school. He quickly realized he loved his work more than his classes, and switched his focus to becoming a chef. He then opened Thai Passion, combining his love of cooking with his artistic eye.

From his artfully plated Thai dishes to his handmade carvings that deck the walls, Mr. Kobboon's ample artistic talent flourishes throughout the restaurant. Each morning, he arrives at the restaurant with a bundle of fresh orchids and adorns each table with one of the delicate blooms. Golden lighting keeps the restaurant as warm and inviting as its cuisine's spicy aromas, which waft from the kitchen until 3 a.m. catering to late-night partiers and those trying to stay awake late enough to tuck in the moon.
