Platinum Pork Leg Stew on Rice, Pratunam, Bangkok

This Khao Kha Moo (Pork leg stew on rice) was a gem of a find stumbling around Pratunam while on lunch break from Death Shopper 2.0 at Platinum Shopping Mall. The dish itself is quintessentially Thai, and they're everywhere on the streets of Bangkok. I've tasted many wonderful versions of this dish, yet this remains by far the most impressionable.

The local lunch crowd packed this place to the rafters, but service didn't miss a beat. Within a minute or two, we had our orders taken and drinks served, and shortly after that, this beauty arrived...

...melt-in-your-mouth pork, laced with buttery fat, served on top of rice drenched with pork-infused gravy with the requisite stewed hard-boiled egg and chunks of preserved vegetables. Out of this world!

The Khao Kha Moo stall shares the limelight here with a wantan mee stall, which appeared to be just as popular. Can't miss it, don't miss it!

Gosh, I have found your Blog by coincidently when I looking for the info of Saifon Shop in Pandan Indah. I wonder if they still running the business till now.

BTW, it is great that you just review Khao Kha Moo in my home town instead! Please enjoy Khao Kha Moo for me as well!

FYI, the preserved vegie is sour one or sung chai.

Ps. I wouldn't Khao Kha Moo will going well in KL since you already have the Pork Belly Stew and also the Pork in Black vinegar.
