Yummehlicious Rangsit Boat Noodles

 Helloooooo famous Rangsit boat noodles, I finally got a chance to eat you.

Row, row, row a boat (noodle)

Spoilt for choices

There were so many boat-stalls at Rangsit, that we were spoilt for choices.

 We chose Rear Rung Napa 1, recommended in the cyberspace.

 

Round 1

Slurp, slurp, slurp. Round One.

 

 

Round 2, top up leftover soup from first bowl

The fish skins and pork skins are soo good

And more slurrrp, slurrrp, slurrrp. Round Two.

 

Bi-lingual menu is available
Moooo satay

30 baht per bowl, and we had 2 bowls each. We were stuffed full with the slurpilicious boat noodles, and also pork satays.

The boat noodles at Rangsit, reportedly the first in Thailand, when Chinese first sold boat noodles here. But the stalls here, were no longer the original stalls. So, they were just riding on the fame of Rangsit location. That’s why the portion we had is also no longer a tiny bowl, but a ‘larger’ size.

Rangsit is located at Pathum Thani province, directly north of Bangkok. It is far from city centre: 35km, took us more than one hour drive from Siam area.

From Don Mueang International Airport, it will take 19km, approximately 25 minutes drive.

Will you make a trip to Rangsit, just for the famous boat noodles? Perhaps you can combine it with Dream World, a popular amusement park for families. Dream World is 5km, approximately 12 minutes drive from the boat noodles stretch.

Otherwise, Victory Monument is your next best bet!

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.

      I prefer the one you had … Rangsit boat noodles are over-rated.

      Hi Ian,

      I looked up for info, and found that Amari Don Muang provide free shuttle to and fro Future Park Rangsit, from Mon to Fri. The link is here http://www.amari.com/donmuang/shuttle-bus.aspx. The journey should be around 15 minutes.

      If you plan go to during weekdays, you might want to consider this option. Then taxi to the boat noodle restaurant. Ask local for estimate taxi fare, so that you don’t get charge foreigner-fare.

      Alternatively, taxi to and fro Amari shouldn’t be a problem, since they are not too far away. Your taxi driver from Amari might offer to wait for you, so that they can also get back to the same direction … they’ll probably ask you to pay a little bit more for their ‘waiting time’ … example if amari-boat noodle fare is 200 baht, then maybe top up 50 baht as tips for waiting, and pay meter fare to get back to Amari. This, is what locals do, and what I would have done as well.

      The boat noodle stretch is located just right to the main road, so I think it should be rather easy, if you find available taxi back to Amari.

      Whichever option you choose, do make sure that you have your hotel and the name of the boat noodle restaurant in both English and Thai language. And be prepared that you might end up at a different restaurant than the one I went to … the names of the restaurants are quite similar. But, most of them are crowded … so, I think that they are more or less the same.

      If you need any more help, feel free to ask ya.
