Spotlight: Khao soi

035

Khao soi is a popular soup noodle dish in Northern Thailand.  It’s great for a quick bite during the day but serves as a particularly nice savory alternative for breakfast, if the mood strikes you so.  The one I had in Chiang Mai was crowned with fried dough sticks reminiscent of the ones complimentarily served at casual American-Chinese food joints.  Below these crispy crawlers were egg noodles, bean sprouts,  tofu, and tung choy in a light but flavorful and fragrant, curry-like broth.  Mild enough so that you don’t break a sweat first thing in the morning but with enough of a kick so that you get up from your stool with your eyes a bit more open, that much more prepared to take on the day.
