Polo Fried Chicken is probably one of the best places selling Fried Chicken (Gai Tod). Yes, you still can find very good fried chicken on the streets, but it really depends. Not every stall is good.
If you want something consistent, head over to Polo Fried Chicken – they serve North-Eastern food from Isaan.
If there is only one dish that you can order, go straight for the Fried Chicken! Even the restaurant is named after their Fried Chicken, so you can never go wrong with the order.
So what makes their chicken so famous?
On the exterior (skin), it is not flour-battered so you actually get to see the actual skin. The layer of skin is thin and there isn’t lots of fats. The meat is tender, flavourful and definitely not dry. And they top it off with lots of Fried Garlic, which makes the dish even more special.
And this dish goes well with sticky rice. Of course you can still have your normal white rice if you prefer.
The chicken comes with 2 chilli sauces – sweet or spicy. You should try both and see which one suits you better.
This place is crowded especially during peak hours and it’s not exactly easy to locate this place, so I would recommend for you to take a taxi here unless you are adventurous. The nearest MRT is Lumphini station.
