Bhamee Hang (Yellow Noodle - No Soup) @Uncle Jont

Sieng Family Bhamee Shops
Ratcha Damnoen 1 Rd, near night market
 
The family's egg noodle secret recipe has been passed on generation to generation. Apart from freshly egg noodle, various ingredients are well prepared, such as boiled pork liver, boiled pork slide, chopped pork, roasted red pork and crispy flour. Sprinkled with garlic oil and chopped coriander.

Another famous dish is wonton by pork chop stuffed in soft flour dumplings cooked in a delicious taste from pork bone soup.

Accompanied with sliced green beans or bean sprouts. Add more favour with crumbled peanut or crispy pork skin. Pork Satay is an appetiser to eat before the noodle.

My order always a bowl of dried noodle and a bowl of spicy wonton soup respectively.

There are three shops; Chakangrao Noodles, Bhamee Sieng Rakchon (Aunty Lee), Sieng Bhamee. All are sibling, their shops located on Ratcha Damnoen 1 Rd, near the night market.

Chakangrao Black Jelly
Black jelly is made from Chinese herb add syrup, and ice cubes as sweets. Generally, the black jelly sweets are sold nationwide but the taste of the Chakangrao Black Jelly is outstanding. Chewy meat jelly is the reason of popularity and sold very well.

Egg Banana (Kluay Khai)
It is one kind of banana that is well grown from the quality of soil, water and air, especially in Kamphaeng Phet province. Kluay Khai town is the nickname of the province to honour our most delicious egg banana in the country. Don’t miss!

Thai Dessert and Snack
The lists of the processed products from banana are plenty of good quality, such as banana chewy toffee (Kluay Kuan), crispy banana (Kluay Chab). Crispy banana is made of sliced banana, fried, and coated with salt or sugar. Now there are barbecue flavour and paprika flavour. It also has crispy taro and crispy potato for choices.

My favourite local dessert is "Kao Tok" made of crumble popped rice, mixed with syrup, and pressed in a mold. The soft little sticky texture, not too sweet is great.
