[Bangkok] It is always fascinating to see street food being brought to a higher-end restaurants, then topped up with premium ingredients.
My question is: Would the Thais pay that much more to eat something in a fancy restaurant that they can find in the streets. The answer is apparently “Yes”.
Doong Aroi Ded located on the 7th floor of The Helix Quartier at The Emquartier, serves up beef noodles, Tom Yum noodles and sliced beef sets.
The rich and tasty broth with depth is said to be cooked using a special traditional recipe which is ‘Aroi Ded Noodle Shop’s’ well-kept secret for over half a century.
I had the Wagyu Beef Noodles (290 baht, ) said to be imported Australian beef with marbling score of 6-8, with choices of base from thin noodle, vermicelli, egg noodles to glass noodles.
The bowl was an agreeable marriage of quality thinly sliced beef and meat balls in robust full-bodied soup base.
Typically the beef served in street stalls tend to be on the tougher side, and the superiority of the meat used by Doong Aroi Ded does provide this humble dish another dimension.
