SabX2 Wanton Noodles, Bangkok, Thailand

Wanton noodle soup

This seems to be a really popular wanton noodle store in Bangkok! Strategically located too, since it's along Pratunam Soi 19, just right opposite the famous Platinum Fashion Mall, the wholesale mall that's really worth a look(; Having just returned from a 3 month stint in Hong Kong, my wanton noodle and char siew standards have shot up pretty high! This version of wanton noodles is closer to the Singapore version, with tiny wanton and the addition of char siew. I actually enjoyed this a lot. The soup was good and I found the char siew really flavourful, even though it's still nothing like its Hong Kong counterparts. I loved adding chilli powder to the soup, there's a sort of kick to it. Strangely, the wantons had a hint of sweetness (water chestnut maybe?) which was pretty unusual, maybe because I'm used to wantons being savoury. Still, this was a pretty good bowl of wanton noodles! Definitely a good rest stop after shopping too, since it was one of the very few air conditioned thai eateries around the area.

Braised pork trotters

These were equally, if not more delicious! The pork trotters had been braised till really tender (you can see the whole pot of simmering braised pork trotters outside the eatery), and the savoury sauce is perfection. We saw everybody eating this, and so we decided to try it too. Best decision ever! I know this isn't the most healthy stuff on the planet, but we finished the entire plate anyway! I think M almost wanted to order a bowl of rice to go with the pork trotters after he finished his wanton noodles, but as usual, we had snacked on street food prior to lunch and his black hole was already maxed out...
