I wasn't hunting for food when I walked down Thanon Ratchawong. But the framed newspaper cuttings hung on the small pushcart of "ก๋วยเตี๋ยวปู 2491" caught my attention and there, I stopped to take a look at this roadside vendor which serves crab meat noodles. The setup looks clean and they were really busy. I didn't exactly know what to order, so I told them I wanted a bowl of noodle soup and insisted that it must come with crab meat. And voila, few minutes later my order came. The noodle soup was accompanied by char siew (หมูแดง / roasted red pork), wonton (เกี๊ยว), shredded chicken, fresh veg and most importantly, crab meat. Well, the combo looks great but I find the noodles a tad too tough and the soup was also rather mild. I also had a Thai Oliang (Iced Black Coffee) which is, typically, very sweet.
