Touted as the best chicken rice in Bangkok, the eatery is close to Pratunam Intersection and directly across the derelict Pratunam Center which construction on the higher levels has halted for quite some time.
Not to be mistaken as the smaller chicken rice stall seated right at the corner of this intersection. Our subject is a minute walk away and located at the mouth of Petchaburi Soi 30. The stall helpers, all donning pink, are easily identified from afar.
I picked a small table at the inner corner of the eatery. Once seated, everything rolled out systematically. A waitress, who speaks no English, took my order which I have to complete entirely in my broken Thai. The chicken rice was served by another helper shortly.
