[Bangkok] Sawang Bami Kam Pu or Sawang Noodles is a new establishment with a “Bib Gourmand” in the Michelin Guide Bangkok, specialising in Bamee Noodles.
Or what some people would call Thai-style Wanton Noodles.
Come over for dinner or a late snack, as they are open up to 11pm every day. Because it is located on a rather dark road, you may just walk past without even noticing the shop.
Sawang Noodles was originally located close to the Bangkok train station in Hua Lam Phong.
It is related to Sawang Noodles on Phetchaburi Road – which is opened by a relative it would seem.
Experience how this family-run business whips up their noodles with crab claws. These tasty, fleshy crab claws have made them popular, helping them succeed and expand to 3 outlets.
The most basic bowl is the Egg Noodle with Barbecue Pork at 60 baht (SGD2.70), while the popular choice is the Egg Noodle with Shrimp Wonton, Barbecue Pork and Crab Meat at 100 baht (SGD4.50).
If you are feeling indulgent, then the bowl is Crab Claws would cost 400 baht (SGD18) for a large bowl, in which a fleshy crab claw is added along with wonton or diced meats on your egg noodles (served dry) with some chopped spring onions.
All in all, more expensive than the average street stall.
Noodles are hand-pulled here, so they may remind you of those from Hong Kong except this is much thinner but no less springy.
The egg noodles had a delicious, bouncy (what some may call al dente) bite.
Tossed in minimal sauce and pork lard, there was this appealing fragrance and subtle flavours.
The locals would add in more of the fish sauce and chilli flakes for seasoning, but I would recommend trying the original taste first.
Portions are considered little though. Take 2-3 mouthfuls and your bowl could be gone.
Another thing to note is soup does not come complimentary, but you really will have to add that 20 baht for the bowl because it is something tasty to slurp on the side.
