This Thai vendor in Essex Market specializes in Hainan chicken rice, and their version involves super gingery rice, tender boiled chicken, and a couple of different sauces to pour on top. But the thing we always find ourselves ordering is their fried chicken bánh mì. Huge thigh chunks come on a crusty roll topped with a handful of crunchy cucumbers, carrots, and fresh herbs. They also serve the crispy chicken over fried rice for under $10.
