Thai Noodle Soup

Walking distance from the Kwang Heng Pratunam Chicken Rice, while we were in the lost, we met a nice local lady and she guided us the way to the shop!

Bangkok 48

Thai Noodle Soup is located in a small alley from the main road and make sure you don’t miss the lane. We reached there around 11am and the perpetual queue was already stretched more than two shops away. In the shop, prepare to be part of the sardine packed crowd and limited movement space.

We ordered the famous wanton mee, wanton soup and their popular braised pork knuckles. Supposed a local eatery place but surprisingly, surrounded us were all spoken in an even familiar Singapore accent. Sinagoorean loves to eat has once again testified here in the foreign land.

Bangkok 52

The uniqueness of this wanton mee was the fragrance from the lard and soy sauce used in the noodle, not the usual chilli sauce you used to get in Singapore. If you have tried Eng Wanton mee at Tanjong Katong, both are fairly similar except Eng Wanton mee is more distinct with the sesame aroma whereby Thai Noodle Soup was more evident with the fragrance from the lard.

Wanton soup was average but the pork knuckle was stunningly fork-tender and nicely braised.

Bangkok 54

Overall, Thai Noodle Soup is a shop worth the visit for a bowl of good wanton mee and braised pork knuckle. (One interesting observation, somehow, for the few days of visits to all the eateries, the portion of serving was relatively small. Or it could be Singaporean are big eater:))

Pork Knuckles and Intestine.

Bangkok 51

Address: Soi Petchaburi 19 (when facing the Platinum Fashion Mall from across the road, walk to the right till you see a side road with a goldsmith shop right at the corner, turn into the lane and not far down the lane and you can easily locate the shop)
Hours: 10am – 3pm

Platinum Fashion Mall

After lunch, do walk across the road to visit the Platinum Fashion Mall, the whole mall is occupied with all the fashion shops and you can get the fashion with very reasonable price or wholesale price if you buy two or more pieces. For ladies, this is a shopping paradise, unfortunately not for the gentlemen, see the directory what the fashion mall can offer you compared to the ladies.

In the evening, we headed to the Asiatique The Riverfront for our dinner.

Bangkok 64

Asiatique The Riverfront is a large open-air mall in Bangkok, a place houses lots of eateries and small shops selling array of goods. Facing the Chao Phraya River and you best way is to take a boat ride there.

Bangkok 65

We were wondering around searching a place for dinner when we stumble upon a queue in front of this Thai Zi Char stall in the food court that houses several other food stalls. Since the place was a full house and queue waiting to be seated, may be worth to try, so, why not.

Rocking Doll @ Asiatique

At the end of our meal or may be more rightfully to say we abandoned the meal just after first few mouthfuls of the food. This is the worst meal we have in Bangkok and not worth to mention further. There are plenty of better foods elsewhere in Asiatique.

Bangkok 70

Address: Wat Phraya Krai, Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok, Thailand

Take the BTS to Saphan Taksin, head for the ferry station, takes the free shutter boat ride provided by Asiatique, usually it is the longest queue at the extreme side (Left) and just a stop away to Asiatique. Alternatively, approach the private ferry providers (same place but just next ferry docking) and pay 20thb/S$0.50 to avoid the long queue and seemingly overloaded ferry.

End of Day 3.
