You soon understand why there is a constant stream of locals gathering at Niyom Pochana to treat themselves with red pork, crispy pork or bbq-pork. It’s truly delicious. It’s one of those places you should make a stop for a quick treat, even if you’re already stuffed. The red pork (moo daeng) stands out and comes with a hard boiled egg, cucumbers, some rice and a rich gravy with a wonderful sweetness added to the dish. It’s all prepared right in front of you.
The locals sit down or order for takeaway, so it’s high volume, always a good signal in respect of quality. You’re plate will normally be a mix of different cuts of pork (red pork, crispy pork, bbq pork) unless you tell them otherwise. Niyom Pochana will be on your right, just a few doors up from the Mahannop road sign. It’s a small shop house, but for all practical purposes, what you get is delicious street food. The service is fast and good.
