Walk into Eim Khao Mun Kai, and you’ll smell two things: chicken and rice. That’s because this place specializes in a Thai version of Hainanese chicken - and it’s the only thing on the menu. A single serving comes with a big mound of rice topped with some tender poached chicken that’s chopped to order. Along with rich, salty broth on the side, it’s a very substantial meal, and it’ll cost you slightly less than $10. Grab some quick takeout, or hang out at one of the big round tables in the little space and enjoy your overachieving casual weeknight meal.
