Back to Bangkok once again! Always feels liberating to be back in this part of the world. We’ll be making our way down south to Hua Hin this time around, which is an excellent getaway beach location that is favored by the local Thai folks, and a tad more subdued compared to Pattaya.
Along the way, it is imperative that any road weary traveller makes his way to this pork noodle shop to fuel up for the journey ahead. The store is named Moo Chan Muang noodles, which is located beside a Susco petrol station (previously Petronas) along Rama II.
The noodles are as simple as it gets, but incredibly satisfying. It is laden with crushed peanuts, minced pork, beansprouts, and rice noodles that has a nice chewy mouthfeel to it. Feel free to augment it any way you wish with the usual array of Thai condiments. I had another iteration of the dish, which had pork meatballs, wantons, tiny shrimp, and crab sticks. It was pretty good albeit I prefer the unadulterated pork laden version.
As much as I love noodles back home in Malaysia, it just can’t beat Thai noodles’ combination of flavours and textures, which is simple in concept yet paradoxically complex. Can never get tired of this stuff.
Location: 595 Soi 33 Petronas Gas Station (Changed to Susco) Rama II, Bangkok.
