Authentic high quality Thai cuisine in a fast-casual setting

Bang Chop Thai Kitchen is a fast-casual Thai eatery in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood at 605 W. Lake Street (312-285-2800). Bang Chop is the newest venture from the restaurant group that brought you the popular Saigon Sisters locations in Chicago. The restaurant group now has three Saigon Sisters locations and is expanding its growing Asian culinary footprint in Chicago with the new Bang Chop Thai Kitchen restaurant. Saigon Sisters has received numerous industry awards, including being named one of Chicago Magazine's Best New Restaurants in 2011.

``We saw a void for Thai cuisine in the West Loop area, so when a space near Saigon Sisters opened up, we jumped on this opportunity. We are bringing to Bang Chop the same creativity, quality and attention to detail-as well as fast and friendly service-that has helped make Saigon Sisters a successful and popular brand with a very loyal following. Bang Chop represents a natural evolution of our company,`` stated Mary Aregoni, President and CEO.

Saigon Sisters, the popular Vietnamese restaurants with three locations in Chicago, has appointed Kevin Marquardt as the new Executive Chef. He is responsible for overseeing the day to day culinary operations of all three Saigon Sisters lunch and dinner locations as well as the Bang Chop Thai Kitchen location.

“My mission is to expand my knowledge of Southeast Asian Cuisine and help the company grow through an evolving menu. I fell in love with their food right away and see a ton of excellent growth potential for all of their concepts,” said Marquardt, who has already added some inspired items to the menu since joining the team in September. New items he has introduced to Saigon Sisters’ menu include Caramel Sriracha Wings, sweet and spicy chicken wings with a fresh papaya slaw, and Shrimp Dumplings with ginger-lime sauce and sprinkled with house made fried shallots. At Bang Chop, Marquardt’s new dishes include a spicy Red Thai Curry and for dessert, Sesame Tempura Bananas with a honey-soy chocolate dunking sauce.
