This SabX2 Wanton Noodle is located beside my hotel, Glow Pratunam, at Phetchburi Soi 19. Just turn into the small lane Soi 19, walk for about two minutes this stall is on the right hand side. This Wanton Noodle is very popular among Singaporeans and the waitress even knows how to communicate in Mandarin.
SabX2 is a fairly clean air-conditioned eatery just across the road of the Platinum Mall that serves mainly three items: Wanton Noodle Dry/Soup, Braised Pork Trotter and Braised Pork Intestines.
Wanton Noodle Dry
The most popular must-order is the Wanton noodle dry. Unlike some of our singapore version, their Wanton noodle has no sauce, no gravy and no fried chilli. The ingredient to Sabx2 great tasting noodle is the fragrance of the deep fried pork lard and a little bit of Chye Po (preserved radish).
There are lots of crispy goodies in every mouthful of noodle, including the slightly char roasted Char Siew. Do note that the noodle’s portion is rather small so do manage the expectation well. And if you are someone who shun stuff like deep fried pork lard, then this Wanton noodle may not be appealing to you. Add some dried chilli flakes for a stronger flavor!
Braised Pork Trotter
One of the reasons to order the pork trotter is – the portion of the Wanton noodle is so so so so small and i could finish it in three mouthful so I’m still hungry! Ok, to be honest, I think the pig trotter is worth a try. The braised trotter is so tender that the meat almost fell apart when I exert more strength on my chopsticks.
There are other braised item like intestine, egg, tau kwa (bean curd). My friend’s verdict of the pork intestine is “I had never tasted such a tender pig intestine. Not in Singapore for sure”. This is the photo that i took during my last Bangkok Trip:
When you visit Bangkok platinum mall, why not just pop by for a quick bite to see why is this little air-conditioned eatery so popular within the Pratunam area. Some of my friends told me that they made it a point to visit this place every time they visit Bangkok. Definitely there are better tasting. Wanton noodle in Singapore, but this Thailand version has it’s own uniqueness in it’s own flavor.
