หมสมจตต - Hokkien Noodles Soup


 What can I add that this text does not to explain what Hokkien Noodles is?

Hokkien noodles. When served in a soup, this is a refreshing dish with round noodles, thinly sliced pork, shrimp and a delicious egg-noodle dumpling stuffed with herbed minced pork. Also in hot demand for the lunch set are ‘dry’ Hokkien noodles, usually stir-fried with a mix of pork and seafood – very hearty and filling, especially if an egg is thrown in.

This noodle shop is next to the more famous Mee Ton Poe Restaurant around the Clocktower at Surin Circle and Hok Ngoun Kung Chinese Shrine adjacent to that.

 The small restaurant is a typical Thai Noodle Restaurant - everything is in Thai and I only saw a menu on the wall!  Just ask for the only thing there in English - Hokkien Noodle Soup.


I had this with a 'Cha Yen' - an iced tea!

The bowl of steaming noodles was very quickly served but was I sure what I was getting? No I wasn't - but it tasted good. It was a bowl of fresh noodles, prawns and chicken served with some small vegetables.


Then came the 'box' in the middle, this is where you choose to add extra things; dried chilli, fresh chilli, salt and / or sugar.


A lovely combination  and I think it all came to under 100 Baht - worth visiting.
