XXL noodles with lots of toppings

When at the store, we had to try their whopping giant wonton noodles, and when it got to us, we agreed that no extra toppings here needed. They aren’t kidding when they say this is massive. Seeing it in real life, we were shocked at how generous the shop was with the toppings.

The dish came topped with huge meatballs, eggs, pork wontons, red BBQ pork, veggies, crispy wonton sheets, and 4 crabs!

Although the dish is dry, it was juicy from all the red BBQ sauce and also came with bowls of soup on the side. The noodles were cooked perfectly and were not clumpy and mushy. We also liked how the eggs were still slightly soft, which added a creaminess to the dish.

Next, we tried the stuffed crabs, which are called poo ja in Thai. Under the shell is where you’ll find succulent crab meat mixed with minced pork and seasoning.

The pork wontons came wrapped in a thin sheet of flour, and it was stuffed well. The minced pork was seasoned properly with soy sauce and pepper too. As for the BBQ pork slices, these added a sweet note to the dish. We liked the flavour this added – it goes nicely with some soup too.

The meatballs had a nice texture and were not overly “flour-y”, meaning good portions of real meat were used.

But don’t be fooled – this isn’t even their largest item on the menu! Real foodies who are up for a challenge can order their crazy 35kg Wonton Noodles (฿2,499, U.P.: ฿7,000).

To avoid huge crowds, we decided to drop by their branch at Srinakarin Train Night Market which opens from Thursday to Sunday. The vibes at Bamee Jom Palung are nice too – it has an open-air seating area in a container space.
