Boat Noodles For The Win!
As it conveniently turns out, we are not the first farangs to Thailand. So we tapped into that knowledge by watching videos from a man who likes to travel and eat: Migrationology. His video lead us to Victory Monument in search of the Boat Noodle.
The noodles are served in (smaller) bowls that have a good 5 or 6 bites in them, so many are ordered and stacked. At the end, the waiter counts each of the bowls, at 10 Baht a piece, and sends you on your way.
I will give my meat-eating friends and family that those with pork in them, were the best. My favorite being the clear soup above that was like a Tom Yum, spicey and sour (with peanuts!). The pink noodles below, “Brewed Bean Curd”, as delicious as it sounds, was unfortunately not my favorite and not asked back to our stack.
With 16 bowls (3 were crunchies), we called it a night and went up front to see the madness of constant delicious soup making, complete with dancing by one of the waiters.
Mark of Migrationology was right that it was a must to experience. I see a return trip in our future, once our lips stop burning, of course.
