Food Plus, Siam Square, Bangkok

Great little lane that joins Soi 5 and Soi 6 down in Siam Square. A stretch of long tables runs down this section of the sheltered alley with food stalls flanking both sides of those tables. Food is cheap and caters to the working crowd in the vicinity and their petite sized meals can be had for as little as 50 baht. 

More khao kha moo can be found here. This was the leaner meat that wasn't directly from the knuckle. Delicious too if I may say. 

And a stall that serves a tasty and umami braised duck rice noodles in soup. It came with gizzards, fish balls and addition portions of duck blood curds. The flavors were crisp and clear. I'd eat this again in a heartbeat.

A side of a lemon grassy hok mok (Thai otah), fried egg and stir fried bitter gourd.

And chicken rice that is served with deep fried meat from the thigh. This was on the whole pretty good in spite of the fact that the rice was in no way on par in terms of flavors with the one at Siam Paragon.

The surprising find in this street food stretch was one of two coffee stalls that sold coffee brewed from freshly ground beans. The beans are measured and then ground by the order, brewed from a machine and flavored with evaporated milk. It puts the regular brew at Starbucks to shame. Don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself.
