I didn’t associate fried chicken with Thai food, but a visit to Polo Fried chicken changed my mind. The polo in Polo Fried Chicken comes from the proximity of a real polo ground. It’s located in the Sanam Khli Alley just off the Witthayu road. It’s a solid 30 min walk from Phloen Chit station.
When we reached the restaurant or what we believed to be the restaurant, they took us about 20m down the road to an unmarked restaurant. The whole thing felt really weird and for a second my scam radar was going off.
I quickly understood that the first location was the kitchen and the second location is where you can actually sit down to eat the famous Polo fried chicken.
This is what the restaurant looks from outside.
This is the reward of walking in the Bangkok heat. Juicy chicken covered in garlic.
Papaya salad Son tam. They will ask you how hot do you want it.
Veggies with garlic
Thai sausages. That was a first and they were spicy and awesome.
We didn’t think about fried chicken as typically Thai, but we had a hell of a good meal where we tried a lot of new stuff like larb and Thai sausages.
The chicken was simply perfect.
They were super patient with us, they had an English menu and helped us quite a bit since we were trying to feed a small baby.
You can see the chicken being carved next to a few tables. I think that the air conditioned room was a much better option.
