After relocating from Los Angeles, May Mananya and Kirk Cohen are sharing their love of Thai food with New Orleans! May was born and raised in Bangkok and Kirk in Southern California. After meeting in Los Angeles, their passion for food and travel were recognized in one another and they haven’t stopped exploring and eating since! Although they share a strong curiosity for all cultures and cuisines, Thai food has been the strongest driving force in their lives as they continually strive to perfect the most authentic and traditional cooking methods of the motherland.
