This time we, Deadly and Chubby, bring you to one of the best local place that serves great Hainanese Chicken Rice (ข้าวมันไก่). This kind of street food place is called "Meng Charoen" and is located between Soi Sathupradit 53 and 55. Unfortunately for those who can only come during evening as this place opens until afternoon when they usually finish off their chicken. Even order for take away, it still tastes fabulous. If you are thinking of ordering for many people, say for than 4, it may be a good choice to order rice and chicken separately. This way you can enjoy more of tender and flavoured chicken.

Hainanese Chicken Rice here is flavoursome and splendid. Rice was just perfectly cooked such that you can separate grain by grain and it was cooked from good quality rice (not the unbroken one). Chicken was really tender and juicy. When eating with chilli sauce, it was just wonderful. Gourd soup was also nice, though some may find this unpleasant due to hint of preserved lime (มะนาวดอง). We may give this (7/10) as it is just Hainanese Chicken Rice and there is surely nothing creative. If I have to score this among chicken rice, this would surely get 9-10 out of 10. By the way, when ordering you can just ask your preferred part of chicken such as drum stick, breast, or thigh.

Just in front of this place, Grilled Pork Ball is also offered to those who visit Meng Charoen. It surely was not bad at all. A good one to eat along with chicken rice for personal joy (5/10).
