Chicken rice is called 'Kao Mun Kai' in Thai language. It is similar to Hainanese chicken rice found in Malaysia and Singapore. In Thailand, it doesn't have bbq chicken like in Malaysia. It only comes with poached chicken (white chicken). The special part of Kao Mun Kai is the sauces. One is made from fermented bean and soy sauce, another sauce is made from ginger. Yummy!
