Family and Ritual at Jinda Thai

10 September 2020

RISING: COOKED is our series unearthing the rituals, tastes and culture of Melbourne’s treasured dining scene.


For our first episode we checked in with Richmond institution Jinda Thai. Filmed during hard lockdown, they used iPads supplied by RISING to film the rituals bonding the family-run business in times of hardship during the pandemic; and the authentic, comforting, generation-spanning recipes the Thai diner has built its following on.

In the clip, Jinda Thai co-owner Premika Tanpapat tells us about Jinda’s pork noodle soup, that uses a decades-old recipe conceived at her grandmother’s noodle shop in Bangkok. Watch the video then go order one for yourself.
