KK & Sons hits the road with Lao/Thai food

July 5, 2018

The wait for Thai food in Sioux Falls is over thanks to the city’s newest food truck.

KK & Sons Lao and Thai Food started serving meals last week from its bright yellow trailer.

Its home base will be at Rice Street and Cliff Avenue in the Mekong Asian Market parking lot, said Mikey Siyawong, whose uncle Khamkong “KK” Xayovong owns the business.

Xayovong’s son and daughter-in-law, Somphong “Tiou” and Ava Senephan, will do all of the cooking with Siyawong. The Xayovongs are originally from Laos and have lived in the U.S. for more than 30 years, said Siyawong, who was born here.

Siyawong describes the menu as “basically like the street food you find along the Mekong River between Laos and Thailand.”

The menu typically will feature five dishes, he said. Some of the regular offerings will be egg rolls and a combo meal with three pieces of fried chicken, papaya salad and sticky rice. The family has more than a dozen recipes it plans to make, so options that will rotate weekly include traditional dishes such as larb, lad na and pad thai.

The family plans to serve food Tuesday through Sunday, opening in late morning and cooking until the food runs out, Siyawong said.

On Sundays, KK & Sons also will serve soups such as pho and kaopiek, both of which feature homemade rice noodles in broth with meat and vegetables.

The food truck will make appearances at events, and the business also does catering.

“Hopefully we can get a restaurant soon so we can serve everything at once,” Siyawong said. The family hasn’t started to look for a permanent site yet, but it’s part of a long-term plan.

Customers will be able to find KK & Sons through updates on its Facebook page.
