Pa Yak Boat Noodles (Kway Teow Rua)

By Wilbur Suen

Updated: 30 August 2014

Kway Teow Rua or  Boat Noodles, as it is better known was originally sold at river canals on a floating boat. Now, majority of them have moved to land and the easiest place to find them is at Victory Monument. When you ask a local about boat noodles, they will probably also direct you to Victory Monument.

At Victory Monument, there are several stalls selling boat noodles. But after hearing from locals and with this stall being air conditioned, this has become the number 1 choice for many. By the way, they are wearing orange shirts. As seen from the photo above, it means that if you finish 20 bowls, you will get a bottle of Pepsi FREE! And its a big bottle!

This is where they prepare your boat noodles. As you can see, the bowl and the portion is small.

There is an air-conditioned section in this restaurant for you to enjoy in comfort.

As this place is frequent by locals and not by tourists, their menu is in Thai. However, you do not need to worry as there will be at least one staff who is able to communicate in English.

Per bowl costs only 10 baht and it comes in 4 flavours. Pork, Beef, Tom Yam and Yen Ta Fo (fermented soybean paste or commonly known to Singaporeans as Yong Tau Foo).

You can see stack of bowls on every table as the portion is so small that 1 person can finish at least 5 bowls.

Victory Monument is one of the busiest transportation hubs as this is the place where buses and vans will bring you to other provinces in Thailand. So you can expect generally high traffic volumes, especially during the day. If you are at Pratunam, you can take a taxi here (please listen to the thai pronunciation of Victory Monument in Thai) as it is just a 5 to 10 minutes drive away. Alternatively, you can take the BTS.
