** The stall **
Just a few hundred metres down the Gui Chai stall @ Yaowarat that I previously blogged was another busy roadside stall selling ancient guay tiao lawt.
Although the name of guay tiao lawt suggests that the noodles take the form of a tube or a drinking straw, the one we had looked more like dried noodle guay jub with sweet source. I did a bit of Googling and found guay tiao lawt may possibly resembled Hong Kong style Chee Chong Fun (rice sheet rolls). The current style could be a simplified version. Basically, that's how Chee Chong Fun would have been if it's sliced and mixed in a plate.
A simple stall along Thanon Charoen Krung Okay it may look a bit messy because of the crowd. It's only THB20 for a standard serving of this Guay Tiao Lawt.
