sukhumvit / rung rueng, best noodle in bangkok

rungruengrung 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.

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.

    I love noodles, but as Bangkok is 6,000 miles from me, maybe Rung Ruang Noodles is a little far to go. Great post again. Love…

    Isn’t it hot to have some noodles when there’s no air condition? Love hearing about these kinds of noodle shops though. Will come back to this when I plan out my Bangkok trip.

    Oh my gosh, these noodles look delicious Annie :D Hehehe I always find that old-school, traditional noodle stands/shops like this taste the best! I always love going to them with my dad because he said it reminds him of his childhood. Your post is seriously making me so hungry, and it’s almost 10 at night here in LA :P <3

    That looks like one of the gems you would miss out on without a recommendation.
