Giant noodles in Bangkok
Located in the Samyan area near Chulalongkorn University is Mee OK, a noodle store famous for its jumbo Sukhothai-style noodles.
Sukhothai is a city in Northern Thailand, and if you’re curious to try some delicious dishes from here, Mee OK is your go-to spot. Here’s what we had.
What to try at Mee OK
We went straight for the Khun-Pon Tom Yum Sukhothai (฿299), a giant bowl of Sukhothai noodles with a crazy array of colourful toppings piled on top. The set is served with a hotpot of soup, which you can choose to sip on the side or dunk your noodles in. It’s slightly sour and tangy, which gives it a unique taste.
The star is clearly the bowl of noodles, which comes with balls of colourful noodles, BBQ pork, eggs, minced meat, meatballs, and rainbow dumplings. The noodles and dumplings are made from natural ingredients with no added colour, like tumeric, roselle, pandan, and egg.
Each type has a different taste
It’s tough to find a store that sells noodles made with so many varieties of ingredients, and Mee OK nails the flavours well. We especially liked having the noodles with the soup, as it made it slightly less dry and added a good peppery and sour flavour to each bite.
Plus, it stays nice and warm and can help clear your throat.
The dumplings are also generously filled with pork and shrimp – we liked the pink one the most as it looked the most visually unique.
