Can I just say I'm really digging the "Sidewalk" plate at Song Kran? I just got back from my fourth Sidewalk lunch this week. And I'm planning on eating it tomorrow, just to make it a straight flush.
Sidewalk is ground chicken with string beans, Thai basil, onion, red bell pepper and chili sauce, served with a fried egg and rice. The vegetables always taste fresh and hover somewhere between sautédom and crunchdom. The egg is over easy, with the yolk running and mixing with the rice and chicken component, giving the dish a slightly richer feel.
When I mentioned it to SENY editor Zach Brooks here in the office, he said it sounded like a dish he had on a train in Thailand. Sure enough, that pretty much looks like my beloved Sidewalk.
The lunch special is $8.95 and comes with a small salad (lettuce, carrots, cucumber, celery, bean sprouts) doused with peanut dressing.
