Glider KS is housed in the gutted floor of one of Kensington Street’s heritage terraces. Owner Mark Christopher Verhoeven and his wife Kanogwan Yodseranee devised the fit-out to flow between Kensington Street’s two identities. Customers sitting under the front window look out to high-flying Automata and Kensington Street Social, while the back of the cafe opens up to Spice Alley.
The menu works with the same sort of Thai-inspired dishes as Glider’s Potts Point site, such as gargantuan crisp coconut and duck rice paper rolls; Thai-style ginger chicken burgers; coconut rice with mango and berries; duck vermicelli noodles and truffle honeyed toast with feta, avocado and Thai basil.
The Single Origin Roasters coffee from the original Glider is also a thing here.
