I waited long to visit “Wattana Panich” after being unable to stop by on my visit to Bangkok last year. This hole in the wall has been featured in many a food blog and it only came to my notice after Mark Wiens from @migrationology wrote about the place in his blog. Looking up this place on YouTube, Iade up my mind not to miss another chance at trying out this legendary joint.
Legend has it that the broth has been continuously boiling since they first opened many years ago and that gave it’s distinct flavour and aroma.
I ordered the “Fine Noodles with Sliced & Stewed Beef Soup” and “Kha Moo with Rice”.
The Beef Noodle Soup was out of this world. After being stewed and tenderised for hours with bags of chinese herbs and spices giving it that taste and aroma, I quickly gobbled down the dish in what felt like a few seconds.
The Kha Moo was good too with the spicy sauce / dressing working well with the pork. The rice was a good add on but I could have done without it.
A place worth visiting if you ever visit Bangkok. You won’t be disappointed!
