Jeh O Chula Popular Tom Yum Mama Noodles in Bangkok
Did you read our recent review on SabX2 Wanton Noodles in Pratunam? You can read it here if you missed it. Another popular food in Bangkok right now is Jeh O Chula popular Tom Yum Mama Noodles. Some people call them Jeh O and Michelin Guide 2019 Thailand call them Jay Oh and awarded them Michelin Bib Gourmand.
The restaurant takes reservation and we asked our local friend to call the restaurant to make a reservation for our table or else you need to queue up and wait up to one hour. Now, you can also make reservation with Klook at https://www.klook.com/en-MY/activity/19089-jeh-oh-chula-bangkok/?aid=602. To be honest, it is easier to make reservation online as most of the restaurant staffs speak Thai if you plan to call them.
They open from 5.30 pm to 1 am daily and most people will come for dinner or supper. You can easily spot the restaurant by the massive crowd in front of their shop. The queue can be quite long and hence why we encourage everyone to make reservation online.
We ordered their popular signature popular Tom Yum Mama Noodles pot for four people. You have to wait for a while for them to prepare the huge pot.
The Tom Yum Mama noodles pot comes with egg, prawns, meat balls, roast pork, squids, lime, spring onion, crab and of course mama noodles sink in the huge bowl of Tom Yum broth.
In terms of taste, this Tom Yum Mama Noodles is flavourful especially the whole shebang in the pot. The primary taste is the sour and spiciness and you get different layers of flavours and textures from the roast pork, the meat ball, the prawn, the squid, the noodles and so much more. There is so many things going on there, you simply love this mama noodles.
On top of that, we also ordered stir fried la la. We ordered the la la first while waiting for the Tom Yum Mama noodles and the la la is fresh and tasty.
The food at Jeh O Chula is better than our expectation. For the pricing, it is above average and not your usual street food pricing. There were five of us so we shared the bill so it is still reasonable.
If you are big fan of Tom Yum and Mama Noodles, you die die also must visit Jeh O Chula. Remember to make reservation online with Klook at https://www.klook.com/en-MY/activity/19089-jeh-oh-chula-bangkok/?aid=602 or else you want to queue outside that can take up to one hour. This is Bangkok street food and we loved it!
