Lim Lao Ngow, a noodle stall in Bangkok's Chinatown

The tongue-twistingly difficult name of this street stall is Chinese in origin, appropriate for a stall on the outer edges of Bangkok’s Chinatown. I was escorted there by David Thompson, who knows the neighbourhood a lot better than I’d expected.

According to David, the highlight here is not the the fish dumplings nor the charming atmosphere (we sat on plastic stools near a drain) but rather the noodles:

And I’d have to agree. Despite the stall’s claims regarding their fishballs (‘The fishballs that jump’, whatever that means), they tasted stale and manufactured. The noodles on the other hand were flat, firm and flavourful. We both found that they had a lot in common with the noodles at Mangkorn Khao, where we had eaten previously that evening.

I know this place, it’s right in front of my girlfriend’s office -Jia Tai.

Really Austin, if you keep up with the name dropping you’ll need to rename this the ‘My Friend David Thompson Blog’. LOL Noodles look so yummy.

I reckon..why don’t you two get married or something.



Wanna say something?
