Boyfriend and girlfriend team Bancha Supanya and Sasikan Kaewnongdang are both originally from Thailand. When they moved to New York City, they were happy to find the food scene had plenty of Thai cuisine to offer. However, like many entrepreneurs, they got into the business after seeing a gap in the marketplace. They decided to fill it in with Mr. Khao Man Gai.
Khao man gai is a popular street food in Thailand that’s all but absent in the United States. On a basic level, it’s a blend of poached chicken, ginger rice, and cucumbers. Bancha and Sasikan start with this basic combination and flavor it up from there, adding savory sauces and aromatic spices to make different dishes. Sometimes, they shake up custom a bit by using grilled or fried chicken over the traditional poached variety. If you’re looking to acquaint yourself with Thai food beyond pad thai, stop by this trailer ASAP. Even better? Book Mr. Khao Man Gai for your next event and expand your guest’s cultural horizons as well as their palates.
