While I was planning for my trip to Thailand, I was supposed to go with whatever food I see on the streets. But when I read about this hidden boat noodle place in Bangkok, the food hunter in me was ignited.
So after we went to Vimanmek Mansion and Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, we found ourselves walking around Victory Monument to search for so-called 'best boat noodle restaurant'.
Boat Noodle is a Thai noodle dish with beef or pork in a thick brown broth that has cinnamon, star anise, or sometimes blood. It was called such because it used to be served on boats.
It was an open air restaurant located at the back of the temple. Staying true with tradition, the counter is also shaped like a boat.
The staff could barely speak English but we managed to get our orders: one pork and one beef boat noodle for 15 Baht each (Php 20).
