01 The TripPacker's Review
Pork Tom Yum Noodles (Sanam Chan recipe), In the mood for something hot.
“Pork Tom Yum (Sanam Chan recipe)”, unlike the name says, this noodle stall is not located in Sanam Chan of Nakorn Phatom province, but in Nan province. The stall itself is in the night market. It isn’t very big as it only has 7 tables. However, you will notice the long line of customers waiting to place their order. Be sure to get there early. Although the stall closes at 9pm, it may close before if everything is sold out.
From the junction with BAAC Bank, head towards “Wat Suan Tarn”, the stall is on your left near a grilled chicken shop.
Once it was The Trip Packer’s turn to order, the stall had already run out of its famous and recommended “Moo Tom Yum” bowl of noodles, so we each ordered 2 bowls of “Yentafo Tom Yum” instead; one with soup the other without. Yentafo is a sour/sweet red paste.
The bowl with soup and without tasted almost similar, the soup made the slight difference. The Yentafo was quite sour, but with an extra dash of sugar, the taste was just right. In the bowl of noodles were also crispy squid, fried tofu, pork meatballs, and boiled pig’s blood.
Our curiosity drove us to ask the owner of the stall why he named the stall after a place in Nakorn Phatom. He told us that he visited there once and that he was amazed with the flavor of the Tom Yum made there, so decided to bring the flavor back to his own home town.
