For the life of me, I have absolutely no idea what this little restaurant in the tent is called, but it sure serves a hell chicken rice! I can’t quite pinpoint the address or direction to this place, simply because it is located in Chatuchak Market. Now, Chatuchak Market is MASSIVE. It is about the size of at least 10 Olympic football fields and you are bound to get lost the moment you are in there. Because of its sheer size and the fact that almost every shop looks the same, the chances of you finding that same shop you patronized earlier can be really difficult, frustrating and almost impossible. All I can tell you is that it’s somewhere along Soi 11 or 12.
It was by chance that I found this place a few years ago. Finding it the second time was really difficult and I remember walking around for at least an hour around the area just to find this stall. Whenever I have to take a friend to this place for lunch if we are at Chatuchak, I’d warn in advance that we might be going in circles, and god forbid that we may never find it that day. It took a few tries before we master the navigation to this place and now, I can depend on Silver Bullet to remember the directions.
Definitely one of the best tasting chicken rice in Thailand ever. It is also probably the only halal chicken rice stall in the entire Chatuchak Market. To most, Chatuchak is a shopping haven. To me, Chatuchak is about THIS very chicken rice. It’s so good that we decided to tar pao* it home for dinner, even after we already had lunch there. This chicken rice always make a trip to Chatuchak worth it.
* Tar Pao: Hokkien term meaning “takeaway”, “takeout” or doggy-bagged food.
