Chinatown Streetfood: Noodles @ Mai Tri Chit

This is a simple but always delicious and clean streetfood stall that has been around for years and years. They serve very good noodle dishes, and an old Chinese couple is preparing the food for you.

I suggest you try their “rad na”, which is a Thai-Chinese noodle dish made with stir-fried wide rice noodles and pork in a gravy from tapioca starch. The soften the pork very deliciously 🙂

Another nice noodle food is “Pad See Ew”:

A typical dish costs between 25-35 baht there (about $1), and is very yummy.

Remember to make use of the pepper, fishsauce, chilli, vinegar and sugar that stands on the table. Many foreigners don’t know how to make proper use of it and thus stay away from it, but you are really losing out on the real experience if you don’t at least give it a try. They all taste differently (spicy, salty, sour and sweet), and it’s about finding the right balance of them.

Getting there: Their foodstall is located on Thanon Maitrichit, about 7 minutes walking distance from the Hualampong train station. It’s on the left side of the street when you come from Hualampong, right next to the Chinese “Sing Heng Doa” almshouse (see below).
