Khao Kha Moo Chang Phueak (Cowboy Hat Lady)
This eatery is not luxurious or fussy but is just a stall selling food at the dining area on the sidewalk but getting a lot of reviews everywhere. Just search a keyword about “cowboy hat lady”, you will find a basket of information, we have not found out why the owner is weared a cowboy hat when serving, but it is true that looking at the stall is unmistakable. The shop has only one main dish is rice with stewed pork leg meat, served with soft-boiled eggs and pickles (salted vegetables) but you can order large or small bowl according to the needs of eating, if you like, you can call some side dishes such as pork intestines. Only that but the restaurant is extremely crowded.
The shop opened from late afternoon to quite late at about 2-3 am), for those who are hungry at late night, come by and eat a bit to warm your stomach and climb to bed and continue to sleep.
