BANGKOK | Bangkok’s famed Boat Noodles originated as a humble dish served by vendors on boats along the city’s canals in 1942. One of the most popular areas for a bowl, is on the canals close to the city’s Victory Monument.
Everyone has their own opinion when it comes to which are the best in the area, and one that always ranks highly is Toy Kuay Teow Ruea. They’re one of the old school boat noodle spots, located directly on the canal.
A small bowl of noodles will set you back just 15 bhat. You choice of tender, slow cooked beef or pork, meatballs, greens, and noodles, inside a rich, dark broth infused with a fragrant mix of Thai spices and chillies. Both are wonderful.
For a few bhat extra, I highly recommend grabbing a serve of the pandan and coconut dessert, and a snack-sized packet of pork cracking.
