Braised pork legs and knuckles can be delicious. It’s one of those dishes you find everywhere in Bangkok. But not all of them are that good. In Thai language we are talking about khao kha moo. And Trok Sung (Kamou Tukzung) knows how to prepare it.
Delicious fall of the bone pork with rice and coriander. On the table you find a bowl of yellow curry sauce mixed with chilies and lime as an add on.
The very gentle and polite man serving the Khao Kha Moo has 2-3 tables on the pawn, next to the Charoen Krung Road. The traffic passing by, non stop. And so do the constant stream of people. It’s a busy area, and a lively area. Hectic during rush hours. But the food is good.
You’re served as soon as you sit down. There is no question on what to choose as he only serves one dish, the khao kha moo. But to be honest, there is no need for another option here. Buy an iced tea manao (lime) from the stall at the entrance to Soi Si Wiang 5, just meters away. You can bring it with you as the gentle man selling the food doesn’t sell drinks.
You find Khao Kha Moo Trok Sung (Kamou Tukzung) outside 1455 Charoen Krung, on the corner to Soi Si Wiang.
Kamor Tukzung have a couple of other stalls spread out in the city – storefront at both MBK and Central World, but this is the better one in my opinion.
