Boat Noodles at Damneon Saduak
Readers of this blog know that we do love our noodles. One of our favorites would have to be Boat Noodles, or Gkuay Tiow Reua.
Damneon Saduak floating market is a popular tourist destination and for good reason. Kasma does stop there on her “off-the-beaten-track adventures” but she always arrives at the market around 7:00 a.m., at least a couple hours before most of the tourists show up. After taking a boat trip around the surrounding canals she’ll invariably breakfast on Boat Noodles at the far end of the market. Although this gentleman appears to have retired, his daughter has taken over the operation.
Boat noodles are a particular type of noodle, usually with a very rich and tasty broth. Sometimes in the city you’ll see a storefront selling “boat noodles” that advertises the fact by having a boat out front to draw in customers.
