A new Thai restaurant could open in the South End, according to a licensing board page on the City of Boston website. Bangkok Pinto applied for a common victualler license for the restaurant space at 1041 Tremont St., which previously housed Super Fry, and before that, Kennedy Fried Chicken. The application indicates Bangkok Pinto will be a takeout place with no seats and will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The proposed manager for Bangkok Pinto is Jakkrit Daranuwat, who appears to have been connected to Tom Yum Koong III in Newton, which is now closed, and Manow Thai Kitchen is operating in the space. There is a Tom Yum Koong in Medford, and an employee there said they are connected to Kapow Thai Cuisine in Dorchester, but not Bangkok Pinto.

Additionally, Wabora Prime has petitioned for a license in Allston. This could be connected to Wabora, which is an Asian fusion restaurant that started out in Canada and opened its first U.S. location on Newbury Street. The proposed restaurant at 164 Brighton Ave. would have 30 seats and would operate Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

UPDATE, 1/11/16: Wabora Prime opened in mid-December, according to Yelp, and it serves Korean-inspired burgers.
