Longan Noodles sound already unique and the story behind its debut is even more interesting. Aunty Chan said she sold her first ‘IMF noodle’ bowls for 10 baht each when the Tom Yum Kung crisis hit.

Besides their magic bowls, Guay Tiaw Lum Yai serves Steamed Chinese Buns with a variety of fillings to try.

The soft and chewy thick bun are generously filled and even the locals will drool.
