rung-rearng noodlehouse

Rung Rearng Noodle House

Years ago, when Khun Mim was still in Bangkok – we went to “Rung Rearng Nodles House” almost every Saturdays. I missed those happy-times very much. Anyways, I still keep going there for lunch as it’s not too far from where I currently work.

It’s a place we have found the noodles are the best in Sukhumvit Road. If you happened to go there at 12.00am to 13.30pm – you would find yourself standing there seat-less. It’s always crowded at this mentioned time.

This Chinese owned noodles house manages to attract loads of people (from Taxi drivers to CEO-s who was drop- off by their fancy Mercedes Bezns. I find this amazing thats because of this noodle house, the rich & the rest can happily mingle enjoying their bowls of noodles in one place.)

Most of their (80%) customers are middle class to well-off people in Sukhumvit as their noodles are considered expensive for Thai people in general – price starts from 40 baht for a regular noodle bowl, 60 baht for an extra bowl. The blows (between regular & extra) are not actually served in different sizes – they simply use different colour to identify the prices when they bill.
90% of their customers order, at least, 2 bowls. Yes.. They are really that good. I guarantee!! I used to take my former boss who is a Singaporean there - he loved & still loves it. Everytime, he happens to visit bkk, he always asks me to take him there.

If you take your car and have zero idea where to park – then look at the opposite empty plot where services car-park – 20 baht is charged per one car. (They don’t ask but by common sense we must know that we should pay.)
