BANGKOK: Jeh O Chula
During my Bangkok trip in June, I wanted to revisit Jeh O Chula again, but when I reached at the junction before making a turn to reach this restaurant, I saw human queue, which was crazyyy… longgg.
That just put me off. We couldn’t afford to queue at hungry hours. LOL. I was pretty luckily to have tried them out right before their queue was this crazy. I remembered it took me about 30 minutes on the queue at dinner time, which was quite a lucky one as compared to this latest visit. So here, I am gonna pen down the experience on my previous visit.
Jeh O Chula
Jeh O Chula is very well-known for its Mama Noodles Tom Yum (that’s the one that went viral on social media earlier) that is only available during midnight; for the supper crowd to get their bowl of the instagrammable yet flavour-packed mama noodles. But, they are actually offering quite a number of delicious dishes. To name a few, they are Signature Crispy Pork, Thai Style Salmon Sashimi, Fried Tofu with Garlic and etc.
Business starts at around 5pm onwards, come early if you wanna secure a table for their small dishes. Or come around 10pm if you would like their signature Mama Noodles Tom Yum, as it is only available from 11pm onwards. I will definitely revisit again if the queue wouldn’t be too long or if I managed to get the fast pass.
And do you know they are listed in Michelin Guide too?!
Get off from the nearest train station – BTS National Stadium, Jeh O Chula is about less than 10 minutes’ walk from the station.
Thai Style Salmon Sashimi Salad (250 baht)
Truly an appetite-boosting appetizer. Thick salmon sashimi cut dressed with this really syok and ass-kicking special dressing. We really love this and will definitely order this when we get to visit again.
Signature Crispy Fried Pork
Must order!!! Thick slab of pork with thick layer of skin and distinctive fatty layer, deep fried into golden brown. It was very crispy and the fats just sink in between teeth. This siu yok is so so so yum!
Deep Fried Tofu (40 baht)
Crispy outer layer with soft fluffy tofu center, served along with sweet plum sauce.
Hot and Sour Mixed Assorted Soup (150 baht)
That’s how it is named in the menu, but I guess, that’s Tom Yum. Simply delicious.
Stir-fry Morning Glory (50 baht)
Deep Fried Pork Neck with Roasted Chili Paste
