Tom Liap Moo – Authentic Thai Pork Noodles at Lumpini Park!
With the Thai government clamping down on street food, it’s only a matter of time before this delicious, cheap and authentic dining alternative gets eradicated.
To me, this place is the epitome of Thai street food. Firstly, the stall is located at the roadside. Secondly, this stall has no name! Thankfully, the stall is stationed here and doesn’t rove about. Locals know it as ‘The Tom Liap Moo Stall near Lumpini Park’.
The only item on the menu is Tom Liap Moo, also known as pork innards soup. Diners can choose to have it with rice or noodles.
The pork items served in a standard bowl include sliced pork, intestines, kidneys, and, the most interesting item for me, pig’s blood! Since pig’s blood is banned in Singapore, I’ve never tried it. So glad to be able to finally try it in Bangkok.
The cubes of pig’s blood may look daunting, but trust me on this, it doesn’t taste as grotesque as it looks. It carries a subtle alkaline taste, and its texture reminded me of a firm tofu. I wouldn’t say that I particularly liked it, but I wouldn’t mind ordering it again.
The broth had a strong taste of MSG, and due to the copious amount of fried garlic swimming in it, was very garlicky as well.
The stall gets quite crowded during lunchtime, so it’s best to come early and get a seat. If you’re craving for more food after, you can go for the Thai green curry at the neighbouring stall.
