Mission impossible? Trying to re-find a stall at Chatuchak (Bangkok weekend market)

Hi all,

On a trip earlier this year to Bangkok's Chatuchak market, we happened upon a great lunch place. It was an Isaan-style place, packed out with Thais and a (very) few farang, that had great fried chicken, sausage, and a really good noodle soup (we didn't really feel like the soup, but we saw that everyone else was eating it -- and it was very good). The place was two or three times bigger than your average Chatuchak eatery, and had a slightly "upscale (well, for a market) rustic" decor -- lots of varnished, rough-hewn wood. The place was located on the "outside" of one of the sections of stalls, so that one side was open to the adjacent lane.

We ate well, left and thought to ourselves - what a find! We'll have to be sure to come back!

Of course, we did not write down the location and, on the next trip, we circled the section where we thought it was for a couple of hours, without any luck in finding the place.

I realize it's an *incredibly* long shot, but I'm hoping someone here might know the place I'm talking about and be able to tell me where in the market it is.... (or if it's closed down).

All help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Michael
