Prik Nam Pla Is Replacing Kor Tor Mor in Somerville's Davis Square

A Somerville restaurant known for its Thai street food is being replaced by another Thai eatery.

According to a poster within the Davis Square Facebook group page (via information from a licensing commission meeting page), Prik Nam Pla is planning to open in the Kor Tor Mor space in Davis Square, with the notice within the page stating that there would be a change of manager from Jakkrit Daranuwat to Rachanee Daranuwat. A source tells us that Kor Tor Mor has been listed as temporarily closed on Google and the website for the College Avenue spot has been down for at least a month.'

Kor Tor Mor first opened in the latter part of 2017.

The address for Prik Nam Pla (and Kor Tor Mor) is 24 College Avenue, Somerville, MA, 02144. A website for Prik Nam Pla is now up, and it can be found at

[November 11 update: According to a Facebook post from Rachel Blumenthal of Boston Magazine, Prik Nam Pla is now open.]
