We had the chance to visit Chicken Embassy the other day, an utterly charming little bistro down a quiet and tiny little lane off Moon Muang Road.

Amidst the labyrinth of the old city sits petite Chicken Embassy, which boldly opened during the pandemic to provide excellent international dishes, mostly featuring chicken, at very cheerful prices.

The owners of Chicken Embassy is a Spanish gentleman, Carlos Jalon, and his Thai wife Jeeraporn Koiram who have run a Spanish tour agency for many years. When the pandemic hit they pivoted, firstly by providing endless supplies of food to the needy, then by thinking outside the box as to how to provide an excellent restaurant at the most affordable prices – hence locally sourced chicken!

You can order Carlos’s delicious roasted chicken with lemon, his grandmother’s recipe from Spain, a super spicy plate of Thai style chicken to make even Jeerapon’s eyes water, a delightful krapao chicken croquette which we can not recommend enough, herby aromatic Moroccan chicken skewers, a classic chicken satay, chicken teriyaki, chicken massaman, Thai chicken in pandan wrap, a Russia salad and even the simple chicken fingers.

For those who prefer other proteins, don’t worry. They have many dishes featuring salmon and other seafood as well as vegetarian options. Then there are the classic Spanish dishes such as patatas bravas, Spanish omelette, lip-smacking gambas al ajillo, bocata jamon, Spanish boquerones in olive oil and the embassy’s more humble – and very much cheaper – version of the paella, the paello, featuring, you guessed it: chicken.

Each Monday the embassy closes to prepare their freshly made sauces and breads, with their baguettes being absolutely delightful, especially when dipped into just about any of the chicken sauces – and you must try the chicken krapao baguette!

We found the selection to be excellent for groups of friends or families, with something to suit all palates and preferences.

Then there is the Spanish-led wine list which featured most of Spain’s wine growing regions and should be of great interest to wine lovers wanting to learn more about Spanish wines. We were recommended the Protos Rueda Verdejo, a well balanced and crisply refreshing wine which was so good we bought a bottle to take home!

Best of all the staff are just lovely. They are friendly, attentive, and just generally really pleasant!
