One of the most popular Thai foods found almost everywhere in Thailand, especially Bangkok, has made its way to Downtown Portland: Nong’s Khao Man Ghai. The eatery offers a variety of Thai dishes, but it is most famous for its khao man ghai: poached chicken served with rice cooked in the broth and an amazing pungent, sweet garlic-heavy chili and fermented soybean sauce. The simple ingredients come together harmoniously, complented by cucumber, parsley and a light, clear soup to tie it all together.
