There are many different kinds of Thai curry in Bangkok: green curry, red curry, yellow curry, massaman curry, duck curry, chicken curry, or pork curry. You name it, it’s available in Thailand. Thai curry is often prepared with a meat base and the gravy is usually made from spices and finally a generous amount of coconut milk is added to make the sauce rich and delectable. Khao kaeng (ข้าวแกง) is the Thai word for rice and curry. There are khao kaeng (ข้าวแกง) stall everywhere serving Bangkok street food, but there’s one place that’s so famous, they call is the Thai curry musical chairs, as one has to jump in for a seat as soon as it’s available if they want to eat there: Khao Kaeng Jake Puey ข้าวแกงเจ๊กปุ้ย (เจ้เฉี๋ย).
Khao Kaeng Jake Puey ข้าวแกงเจ๊กปุ้ย (เจ้เฉี๋ย) sets up everyday (except Monday) along one of the side streets in Chinatown Bangkok. They sell a number of Thai curry dishes and a few other items, but their menu is very simple and limited – because everything they do is high quality and perfect. People actually hang out and wait for hours just to get a plate of Thai curry for there or for takeaway at Khao Kaeng Jake Puey ข้าวแกงเจ๊กปุ้ย (เจ้เฉี๋ย). The day I went, I decided to arrive right as they opened, just in the afternoon. Arriving just after opening, there was already a swarm of people gathering in front of the stall on the sidewalk and plenty of happy looking customers already enjoying a plate of food. If you know what you want to eat, you simply grab one of them musical red chairs and sit down and call out your order. If you don’t know what to order, you can instead go to have a peek at what Thai curry they have for the day. Kaeng keow wan (green curry) and kaeng kari (แกงกะหรี่หมู yellow curry), are two of their signature hits. I decided to go for the kaeng kari, which was scooped all over my rice including pork and lots of creamy coconut sauce. Along with the Thai curry, I also ordered some of the famous Khao Kaeng Jake Puey ข้าวแกงเจ๊กปุ้ย (เจ้เฉี๋ย) pork ribs (ซี่โครงหมูอบ). And finally, the vendor had asked if we wanted some slices of Chinese sausage on top, and of course we said yes. The kaeng kari (แกงกะหรี่หมู) was incredibly creamy and not too strong in flavor but just perfect. The pork ribs were outstanding, they were like honey glazed and bursting with flavor. Sitting on those plastic chairs eating a plate full of Thai curry, is my pure idea of great fun!
After finishing my first plate of food, I could not resist ordering a second plate, it was just the right thing to do – it was almost involuntary. This time, I had a plate of rice topped with kai paloe (ไข่พะโล้), which is a boiled egg in sweet soy sauce and Chinese spices, and stir fried crab (ผัดปู), yet another outrageously delicious dish. My second plate was nearly as good as my first plate. Khao Kaeng Jake Puey ข้าวแกงเจ๊กปุ้ย (เจ้เฉี๋ย) is has become a legendary Bangkok street food stall for a reason, they make stunning Thai curry and other dishes and they use high quality ingredients. Though it can be hard sometimes to find a seat, it’s worth hanging out with the crowds for this meal. When it comes to Bangkok Thai street food, this is about as good as it gets – stunning Thai curry and rice!
