How many bowls of noodle you can eat per meal? There, boat noodles at Victory Monument, I bet you can eat more than 5 bowls.
We call Boat noodle (Kuay Tiew Rua, ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือ) because in the past the noodles were served from the boats floating in canals or rivers. Nowadays they are served in the restaurant on the land. Only for some places like floating markets you still can see noodles served from boats.
The signature of the boat noodles at Victory Monument is the very small size of the bowl. Each bowl costs 10 baht (it was 7 baht before). There are many restaurants there. I have to confess that I don’t know which one is the best restaurant there. We decided to eat at Rua Thong Restaurant and the taste was not bad.
This restaurant doesn’t have a menu in English, but you can order what you want by pointing out to the menu. Soon, you will know your preferences! They have a variety of noodle soups such as Nam Tok, Tom Yum, and Yen Ta Fo. One recommendation from me is order a few bowls at a time, so you can eat while waiting for your next order. They also have a promotion to encourage people to eat more. If you (and your friends) can eat 20 bowls of noodle, you will get 1 litre of Pepsi for free. So, if you go there with at least 2 friends, I’m sure you will get it.
Here is what we ordered. First we ordered 7 bowls, then 4 bowls more. Compared to other people in the restaurant, we ate very less.
So, our stack was not high 🙁
Update: January, 2014
Location: Victory Monument. Get off from skytrain (BTS) at Victory Monument station. Then, walk through Victory Monument Skywalk around the circle. Once you past the monument, look down to the streets on your right. When you see the canal, walk down the stairs and choose a restaurant along the canal.
