Intu - Intu-on

Intu is making Thai dishes on her own terms, true to her Thai origins, unapologetic of reduced salt and sweetness to appease American tastes. 

Her new eponymous pop-up, Intu-on, has been gaining buzz and selling out — particularly once it moved into Hayes Valley wine bar Birba in July. 

Intu was most recently the sous chef at Kin Khao, San Francisco’s groundbreaking Michelin-starred Thai restaurant, and was training to become the chef de cuisine when the pandemic hit. With the restaurant temporarily closed, Intu looked at her newfound free time as an opportunity to focus on the thing she really wanted to do: bring her version of Isaan-style Thai food (where she grew up) to the Bay Area.
