[Tokyo] Khao Man Gai restaurant Pui (カオマンガイ専門店 プイ): Extremely Delicious Thai Chicken Rice in Kiba

Khao Man Gai: A Culinary Masterpiece at Thai Cuisine Pui

Khao Man Gai at the renowned Pui restaurant is a symbol of Thai gastronomy. Imagine fragrant rice, bathed in chicken broth, crowned with succulent boiled chicken, and accompanied by a symphony of flavors in a tantalizing sauce. This Thai sensation traces its roots to Hainan Island, China, evolving from the famed “Hainanese Chicken Rice.”

In Thailand, Khao Man Gai is a street food marvel, celebrated in niche eateries, and it has even captured hearts in Japan. What sets it apart is the infusion of chicken essence into every grain and the tantalizing juiciness of thigh meat, skillfully leaving a hint of chicken skin for that divine richness. Jasmine rice, caressed by aromatic spices and chicken broth, forms the canvas for this masterpiece.

The sauce, a meticulous blend of fish sauce, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and chili, gets a final touch with Thai miso, “Tao-Chio,” elevating the overall flavor profile. Served with cucumber, coriander, and a side of soup, Khao Man Gai is a customizable delight, allowing you to adjust its spiciness and acidity to your liking.
