I know I'm a little behind on this one, but Nong's Khao Man Gai has been on my list of places to eat at ever since I've moved to Portland. Last night I finally got around to trying this famous chicken and rice.
Chicken and Rice. That's all you need to order. Prepare to be blown away by this chicken and rice. Which is a sentence I never thought I would ever be writing.
Poached chicken and rice sounds like the world's most boring dish, but Nong's chicken is what all chicklings should aspire to be one day. The Khao Man Gai sauce that comes with the chicken is something that I want to put on everything now. Yes, everything. Garlicky, peanuty, spicy and everything worth eating is in this sauce.
Also, Nong was on Chopped last night as well! You'll have to watch it to find out if she won or not!
I recommend checking out the new location on SE Ankeny.
