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.

My verdict: The jumbo ingredients were an eye-opener but the noodles can be more tender.

Table for two: THB50 for my noodle combo. THB12 for the Oliang.

Recommended: NA

In a nutshell
> Great combo at affordable price

> Tough noodles

So basically, crab meats are garnish of a bowl of noodle. Kinda disappointed. Crab Meats Noodles so I thought there must be a lot of crab meats on the bowl of noodle but I guess I was wrong. What are inside of wonton? and there are some meats what kind of meats. I might try

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.
