Brixton Village: Kaosan

Kaosan has been getting a lot of good press lately.  Brixton Village has made it into the Standard, Jay Rayner has review Kaosan specifically, it's loved on Chowhound.  Sadly when I first went there I was a bit underwhelmed.  But then I had Larb Gai, a combiation of toasted rice, minced chicken and coriande, which is fine, but not the most exciting thing in the world - this Saturday the Moo Ping pork skewers marinated with sugar cane, and stir fried pork with holy basil turned me around completely.
This place is small and, perhaps unsuprisingly given quite a few of my last few articles it's in Brixton village. It's all fairly basic, in a kind of cafe way.  The service is friendly and pretty quick though they forget to bring water sometimes, not a big complaint since they are so nice.  Most important are the smokey pork skewers, rich curries (the Massaman in particular is very good) and tangy soups.  Definitely a good feed, especially when it will cost you around £12 for 2 courses.  It's also BYOB.  Very good.
