Thai Boat Noodles is a favorite dish

Thai food is such a great adventure because there is always something different to try on the menu. If you’re not familiar with the many varieties of Thai noodle soups you’re in for a special treat. We’d like to introduce you to Thai Boat Noodles, one of our very favorite Thai noodle soups.

Thai Boat Noodles

For those that grew up in Thailand, Thai Boat Noodles (Kew teuw leur) is a special comfort food that reminds you of home. This is a very popular dish that you’ll see everywhere on the streets of Thailand available from the street vendors.

Thai Boat Noodles is a satisfying and hearty soup with an intense brown broth, beef balls, slices of beef and plenty of rice noodles. The flavors bring out the classic Thai balance of spice, sour, sweet, and salt.

Here at Rachada Thai Cuisine, we serve our delicious version of Thai Boat Noodles in a nice big bowl, almost a meal by itself.

In Thailand, it’s common to get Thai Boat Noodles from the street vendors in smaller bowls that hold less than a cup of soup. To be honest, if you love Thai boat noodles like most people in Thailand, just one of these smaller bowls is simply not enough. You might need three or four of the little bowls before you’ve had your fill.

If you visit Thailand, you might even run into a Thai boat noodle soup contest. See who can finish the most number of bowls of soup, stacking their empty bowls (the small bowls) eight and nine high as they go.

So if you’d like to try something new, or you’d simply like to find one of the best bowls of Thai noodle soup around, come into Rachada Thai Cuisine in Moorpark soon for a delicious bowl of Thai boat noodles.

  7. Hello Zack,

    We wish you could come in and try our Thai Boat Noodles. Occasionally, we may provide a recipe as a special feature, but generally, we don’t give out our recipes. I hope you’ll understand.

    Let me point you to an excellent recipe for Stewed Beef Noodle Soup from Kasma Loha-unchit at Thai Food & Travel. This noodle soup recipe is very authentic, Kasma is one of the best.

    And if you ever come by our area in Southern California, be sure to pay us a visit.
