Bangkok Food Hunt 2017 - Pork Soup on Maha Chai Road
Maha Chai Road is a treasure trove for street food and if you are hungry any time of the day this is the place to go. We came across this simple pork soup stall and was tempted by the display of crispy pork on the stall window, and decided to have supper there.
The soup is very simple but tasty - no doubt laced with lots of MSG - but it also had natural umami from pork bones and a strong kick of peppery spiciness. The star of the dish is no doubt the crispy pork pork - which has been deep fried and not roasted in the normal way so is dry but extra crispy - perfect when dunked in the soup.
