Khao man kai in Portland, Oregon

I blog about Thai food, but my hometown is Portland, Oregon (OK, Sandy, Oregon, if we’re being specific), and am always fascinated when these two disparate destinations cross paths. That’s why I was particularly excited when I received an email from Nong, a former cook at Pok Pok, the Portland restaurant, about her recently opened place: Nong’s Khao Man Gai, a stall selling Hainanese chicken rice on SW 10th and Alder. Has anybody been yet?

Addendum: The blog Food Carts Portland, which, as the name suggests, focuses on food carts in Portland, recently reviewed Nong’s stall.

Nong’s Khao Man Gai is damn good. I’ve been several times since she opened, and she also lives very near where I work, so she frequently brings me other dishes she makes at home. It’s rare that my Thai food experiences transport me back to Thailand, but Nong’s food totally does it. Small world!
