Rung Reung continues to offer some of the finest noodles in Sukhumvit. But before I continue and to avoid any confusion, a short back story is needed. The open-sided shophouse opened more than 55 years ago and was later expanded by the founder's two sons who took over after their father passed away. A family dispute led the shop to be split in half and still to this day the two shops sit side by side, the same name, the same recipe.

The original shop sits on the corner and some say the noodles are better there, but fear not if there's only space next door, the experience will be much the same. Both have won awards for their food - either clear or spicy tom yum broth with minced pork and bouncy hand made fish balls.

Like identical twins, both Rung Reungs have almost exactly the same interiors - simple spaces clad in ageing aqua blue tiles, open kitchens edging along the street and tables dotted with stacks of chopsticks and noodle condiments.

Expect to queue, both are very popular among Bangkokians, not to mention a growing crowd of Chinese and Japanese of which the shop is particularly famous. Dining is generally brisk here so you shouldn't wait long, though it's best to avoid peak dining times. If you do nab a table, the prices are reasonable. You'll pay somewhere between 50-70 THB (US $1.60-2.25) depending on small, medium or large bowls of noodles.

What to order

The menu at Rung Reung is pleasingly simple. First choose what style noodles you want, there are several different thicknesses of rice noodle, ba mee egg noodles and thin glass noodles. Then there's the choice between tom yum, a classic Thai sour and spicy broth made from lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and galangal or a dry version without soup. Or you could opt for a clear broth or one with extra fishballs. All are cooked with minced pork.

Don't skip the optional crackers made from deep-fried fish skin which provide some welcome texture. And experiment with the table condiments to your taste. Many Thai's add sugar. There's also chilli for heat, crushed peanuts for texture and a couple of small ladles of chilli-laden vinegar adds a slight sour note.
