Kway Teow noodle dish is one of the famous street food in Thailand. It is very cheap and comforting food for the locals. I have visited Thailand a few times and love their food. On one of my trips, I tried a bowl of noodle soup (sitting at the street food stand) myself.
This Thai kway teow dish is so unforgettable and delicious! I’m so glad I can make this now at home. I don’t have to go to Thai restaurants just to satisfy my cravings for this yummy noodle soup. I used to recommend this a lot to my friends, and now I can share my recipe.
