A dynamic duo of the Boston restaurant world is getting ready to share its culinary mastery with Southeast Asia. Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette are currently in Bangkok, Thailand, where they will open the first international expansion of Toro, their Spanish tapas restaurant with locations in Boston and New York City, according to Boston Magazine.

Oringer and Bissonnette, who are also working on a new concept in Cambridge called Little Donkey, are traveling through Thailand for the next two weeks as they prepare to open this new location for Toro. A post on Toro NYC's Facebook page shared details of their trip to Bangkok.

This Bangkok location is apparently opening in a venue called 72 Courtyard within the next few weeks, according to a post from the Boston location.

No sleep til Bangkok. Taking off mañana to go open @toro_bkk @kenoringer & I are pumped! #paintedsky
