Chiang Mai: Noodles for just 5 baht a bowl causes much mirth

Recommended Posts

Used to be a place in CM that sold them for 3 baht. I believe it is still there but not sure on their price as of today. Used to eat there now and then with the family as was actually pretty tasty.

Boat noodles are often sold at very low pricing. But, the bowls are usually accordingly small. It is typical for people to by a few bowls

There is a shop, next to the Bangson MRT station, that sells 12 baht boat noodles, the everyday, everybody price. For a while, they even had a "Buy 5 - 1 free" promotion.

At the Henry Dunant end of Siam Square, there is an 18 baht boat noodle shop. They also declare "No MSG".

15 baht as there is one more in the family. On birthdays I would allow them to eat 2 bowls and buy a coke.

Not sure if this was done by adults or kids. If by adults, I hope they paid regular price.

 

The problem with kindhearted gestures and displays of generosity like these is, they are always being taken advantage of. An inconsiderate and unscrupulous git could get a kid to buy 10 - 20 portions, so the rest of the family can have a filling meal at 5 baht per order! And this particular family may not necessarily be poor! Ketkanda should limit take-aways to two portions per kid. Eat all you can (for kids) when you sit in.

 

 

You serious?

Amazing what passes for a nutritious meal in this country...

And sad that some people have no choice, but to eat them.

He must be pretty dry by now, judging by the amount of noodles they've sold.

Perhaps he's roped in some friends to help out with the supply?

Nonono, they moved to Pattaya, the noodle stall run by the three ladyboys. I hear they get a lot of help from fellow ladyboys.
