Although this blog is mostly built on hotdogs and burgers, I like eating all kinds of food and - aside from stinky tofu - I really like the asian cuisines.
This week I’m in Bangkok, visiting a buddy who’s lived out here for around 10 years, which makes for the perfect guide to all the local stuff, tourists typically don’t get to try. And dammit, have I eaten some great stuff!
The other night we ventured to Sukhumvit Soi 38, which is the 38th side street to Sukhumvit - and here you’ll find a range of street kitchens, all specializing in different things.
I’m by no means an expert on what we ate, but we tried a lot of different stuff and it was all very good, but the one thing that still makes my mouth water, was an abelone noodle soup! Something I never thought I’d write on this blog, haha! But there you have it. It was goddamn fantastic.
I talked to the owner, and he told me the recipe was a mix of the Chinese and Korean versions of this dish and the abalone imported from Taiwan. However, he did mention that the broth was boiled down twice, which explains the really condensed, smooth, complex, and flavourful taste.
So swing by the Sukhumvit Soi 38 abalone noodle stall - it’s the only one there, so you can’t miss it. And you won’t regret it!
