rung rueng best noodle you’ll ever lay hands on – you simply can’t go back home from thailand without trying out some of the local delicacies the local way now, can you? if you know me in person i probably have already dragged you to this place multiple times. rung rueng has been my favorite noodle shop ever since i stepped foot in thailand about 15 years ago. yes, this family run business goes back a long, long way. often times you’ll find the most unassuming crowd of thai celebrities and well known faces eating next to you or even at the same table. just keep calm and enjoy your meal.
you should bear in mind that the restaurant is not airconditioned. you might even have to wait in long queue or be seated with a total stranger in peak hours. but it’s cool, it’s cool.
back then a bowl of noodle used to cost 20 baht (50 cent) but even after doubling the price you really can’t go wrong with 40 baht a bowl.
my personal favorite is their tom yum noodle without soup and since i don’t eat meat i only ask for the fish balls. you sprinkle some crushed peanut and sugar on top and ahh, there goes foodgasm. even you small appetite ladies will have to have at least 2 bowls of these.
now they have english menu on the wall which makes life so much easier for us foreigners. although it might seem a little appalling for many first timers have my (and mitziemee’s) word for it. go give it a try and you’re gonna find yourself craving for more.
ps. there are two shops next to each other with the same name (both run by relatives but the competition is real) but i personally prefer the smaller one on the corner.
