An Issan-Style Feast

I always go to SP Chicken for Issan-style food, which is the food of northeast Thailand. Go with a group of friends so you can order more and try everything. The chef here makes exemplary kai yang, roasted chicken. You’ll see it cooking slowly over the flames on a vertical spit beside a wall of charcoal. The chicken is stuffed with seasoning like garlic and lemongrass. It definitely takes center stage on the menu. —Andy Ricker
