It is over 60 years that the secret recipe of roasted pork rice has been passed through generations of Si Morakot. This place is undeniable to serve one of the best roasted pork rice in Thailand. This place may operate until 8pm, however, it usually runs out earlier. I, personally, did give it 3 attempts and failed all to have it for dinner. Leaving my last choice to come during lunch time to be sure. This street food looking place is just like others, it is just a non fancy place that serves tremendous taste food. Personally, I would suggest both local and foreigner to give this a try.
For those who have never give this amazing place a visit, it is not difficult at all. Coming into Soi Sukon 1 from Khao Lam Road, it is less than 50 meters on the left hand side. Just bear in mind that there is no parking space, hence, leaving parking along road as the only choice. If you decided to come by public transport, MRT Hua Lamphong station is the stop to get off.

Here comes one of Thailand best roasted pork rice. With THB40 per plate or THB48 with egg, you get a delicious and value for money dish. Rather large plate of generous portion. Roasted pork was also nice and roasted belly pork was crisp. The secret of this splendid taste is the sauce. It was not just sweet like other places. Though it may not be a favourite one for kids but surely for adult (9/10).

To accompany the roast pork rice, there are also a few choices of soup to be chosen depending on day such as Pork Stomach with Preserved Vegetable Soup. They were all pretty nice, though it tasted of old style dish. They all were refreshing (8/10).
