Mae Sri Ruen


Chicken noodle landed in the Paradise

Fifty years ago Mae Sri Ruen stared from selling chicken noodle in Pattaya and has now expanded to a chain eatery with nearly twenty branches in Bangkok and Pattaya; with her renowned chicken noodles (either soup or stir-fried style) still being the star of the shop. Last week I went to the Paradise Park and spotted that there is a Mae Sri Ruen outlet, so I settled my early dinner with her chicken noodle.

Somehow I didn't try their chicken noodle but their Pad Thai is quite ok.

there is one Mae Sri Ruen banch near us, on Silom Road (opposite Silom Soi 19)

The chicken noodle is in small portion though.
Not enough for TC.

Thanks and will try try later.
SS, small x 2 or 3 aren't small then. :)

Stella said...

Oh that is correct but in that case the price is also small x 2 or 3 la.
That is why food in LA is cheap considered the huge portion. Price of lunch special with drink is around at Garden Cafe is $7 US but the portion is 3 times of those in BKK(which is already bigger potion than those in HK). Most of the times I ate half and packed the rest for my husband he thinks that is one new order instead of left over.

I see.. so when your husband goes out to dinner, he would wonder why every dish you order is double sized.

Mae Sri Ruen is very delicious chicken noodle in Pattaya and Bangkok.

I have tried the one at Pattaya Klang, Pattaya. I ordered 3 dishes: big knuckle, fried scramble egg with minced pork, and coconut chicken soup. I would like to say, this dinner is the most awful one within my 3 month stay at Pattaya. The pig knuckle is cold, the scramble egg is burnt, and the taste of the soup is a mingle of salty, sweet, and sour. You cannot taste the natural flavor of the herbs of the soup and the coconut milk is so little that you even can forget it. It is totally different from the picture of the menu. Well, that is why there are not many customers patronize there.
