Thai "Spicy Chicken" in SF or East Bay?

  • h
  • 8

Hey, Does anyone out there have restaurant recommenations for thai spicy chicken? I'm talking about well seasoned minced chicken with jalapenos and basil. Not sure if this is the same as gai ka prow but I usually don't find this as well seasoned or with minced chicken. The best place I've had is at Siam Kitchen in SF on Sacramento and Montgomery. Anywhere else I can find it? It would be nice to have a place in Berkeley I can go but I've found nothing. Any help appreciated. Thanks

  1. I haven't had kaprow at Bang San, but their larb gai is amazing. Minced chicken cooked to order and mixed with very fresh herbs, liberal with the spice. I bet they'd do a similarly good job with kaprow.

        That Racha closed. It's now called Zen Yai.

      2. This sounds like what Soi Four serves ( in Rockridge on College) They have a minced chicken that has chilis that is wonderful. It is listed on the menu as gai gra prow. One of my favorites @ SoiFour

        1. Thai House Express on Larkin. Tell them you want it spicy.

              Haven't been by in a while but I also liked the eggplant dish with beef.

            2. I can't remember if the chicken was minced or not but Vientian's version is well seasoned and spicy!
