Noodle Perfection, Bangkok, Thailand

There are plenty of outstanding Thai dishes to eat. When it comes to noodles I often either go for boat noodles at Victory Monument or beef noodles on the street…

That is… until discovering chicken noodles with bitter melon (kuay teow gai mara).

It’s truly a wonderful thing – the slices of bitter melon elevate the concoction to perfection.

    This is something that I can definitely try. Very mouth watering. Was it hot?

      Hey Shalu, yes, but it’s not served hot, it’s all self service on the dry chili flakes.

    Looks spicy, was it? I haven’t had bitter melon for years now, well I’m not really looking forward to try them sometime soon (I was told they’re healthy for you but it just doesn’t taste good).

      Hey Jam, yes it’s spicy, especially after I added a bunch of chili! Yes, bitter melon is very healthy, and I really enjoy it.
