** The stall **
On one of the weekday's evening, the bf had some errands to run at Yaowarat. We went there by cab, when the traffic eventually slowed to a crawl. We alighted and found ourselves stopped right in front of this fried Chinese chive (Thai Teochiew: Gui Chai) dumpling stall tendered by a middle-age redhead Chinese lady. The stall was really busy. The flow of customers never seems to stop. We told ourselves we found something interesting!
The bf spoke to the friendly lady stallholder briefly. She told us her dumplings typically sold out within 5 - 6 hours from the time she starts her business at 2pm. She added that her stall even opens on public holidays e.g. New Year & etc.
A humble stall along Thanon Charoen Krung The friendly ah-jer ... Wonder how many pcs of chive dumplings are in these red tubs!? Apart from chive dumplings, there are also chive cakes.
