Seeing our table-mates having Pork Leg Ovaltine – Savoury’s pork knuckles cum internals platter, we had ourselves a portion too. Sorry, forgot how much it was.

Pratunam Wanton Mee & Pork Knuckles Rice 06

We were left disappointed once when Pork Leg Ovaltine – Savoury’s pork knuckles rice were sold out before 2pm!

Of course we wouldn’t have tried Sab x2 ::: Original Thai Wonton Mee’s Wanton Mee Soup @ THB60 if this wasn’t the case. And it was so good!

Who knew Wanton Mee Soup could be so amazingly delicious 😯 It must be their generous portion of pork lard. The heart & soul of Pratunam Sab x2 ::: Original Thai Wonton Mee!

Pratunam Wanton Mee & Pork Knuckles Rice 08

Pratunam Wanton Mee & Pork Knuckles Rice provide the below condiments to go with their food too.

Seriously though, you don’t need any of them. Sab x2 ::: Original Thai Wonton Mee & Pork Leg Ovaltine – Savoury Pork Knuckles are delicious just like that.

Thailand Food – Pratunam Wanton Mee & Pork Knuckles Rice

Category : Thailand Bangkok

This is definitely one of the most daebak Wanton Mee I’ve ever eaten in my life! Hahaha…I don’t know how else to say it so I’m just going to say it plainly 🙂

This amazing local Thai restaurant is just a short walk away from Platinum, one of Thailand Bangkok’s popular tourist spots selling clothing at wholesale prices, if you buy in bulk.

Platinum Fashion Mall is somewhat like an indoor Chatuchak except that it opens everyday and is air-conditioned 😀

Besides the awesome Wanton Mee, it also has the most amazing Pork Knuckles Rice. If you’ve read my other posts like the one on Sur Nuevo Latino Kitchen, you’ll know that I’m really not that into fats. However, as this place is highly recommended by our relationship manager, I decided to give it a try anyway and boy was I blown away. Yummy!

Just check out the queue man! We went there for 2 consecutive days and the queue is a permanent feature outside this buzzing restaurant with pork knuckles on its left and Wanton Mee on its right. Just looking at the photos is making me salivate!

The interior of the restaurant is packed & set up to maximize space. There’s free flow chilli at the tables with some pretty interesting signs on the wall… 😛

We didn’t have to wait too long before our noodles were served. We decided to try both the Char Siew Wanton Mee & the Char Siew Crab Meat Wanton Mee PLUS Pork Knuckles Rice. It’ll be a shame not to have both while we’re at it.

The portion of the Wanton Mee is not too big, which makes it possible to enjoy the Pork Knuckles Rice at the same time. BUT it’s definitely not small on flavour which I’m guessing comes from the lard. It’s not obvious in the picture above but check out this huge lard in the takeaway our relationship manager bought for us.

And the Pork Knuckles Rice, OMG! The flavour is spot on and the fats just melt in your mouth. Plus the gravy is thick and savoury. Mmmm~

If you are in Bangkok, and you are in the area, you MUST definitely add this Wanton Mee & Pork Knuckles Rice into your itinerary!

PS: Even though their operating hours is till 3pm, we heard that they’re usually sold out around 2pm so better be there earlier 😉
