I love restaurants that specialize in a single dish and do it well. At Eim Khao Mun Kai that dish is khao mun kai, Thai for Hainanese chicken, a dish spread throughout southeast Asia by Chinese migrants from Hainan. The chef here is from Bangkok and this version is excellent. $9 will get you a chicken broth soup and a plate with chicken meat, gizzards and liver over jasmine rice. Flavor the dish to taste with heaps of minced garlic and crushed chillies.
