With A Line that Long, it has to be Good – Nong's Khao Man Gai, Portland, OR

While in Portland checking out some of the city’s many food trucks and carts, I noticed a particular cart that had a line clearly longer than everyone else. It was a very simple cart, no fancy paint job, but with a huge line so I was intrigued and had to check it out. They offer one thing on the menu, Khao Man Gai, a dish of Thai chicken and rice served with soybean sauce and a side of soup.

Love the Simple Packaging
Nong's Khao Man Gai - Yum!

It was so simple but executed perfectly. The chicken was extremely tender because it was cooked in chicken stock, which also heightened its flavor. It is served with a small side of soybean sauce, made up of garlic, ginger and chilies. The chicken and rice are wrapped in butcher paper and tied with a rubber band. I can easily understand why this is such a busy food cart and would definitely go back the next time I’m in Portland.
