The story of 55 Thai Kitchen begins with our Head Chef, Vijit Pipatkhajonchai or “Jit” for short. His family owned a restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand where he worked since he was only 15 years old. It was there that he began to develop his palate and love for cooking. 25 years and 9 different restaurants later of mastering his craft, Jit created 55 Thai Kitchen with our first location in the back of a liquor store in Golden Hill. What began as a passion project quickly grew into the restaurants that are open now. Over time, he found his other business partners: Vijitra Pipatkhajonchai (his daughter), Supap Promson, Kiel Stitzell, and Ben Methakul who share the same values and goals for 55.
