Thai food is arguably one of the best cuisines in the world. It’s tasty and uses all of the taste profiles— salty, sweet, spicy, sour, and even umami. The best part? It’s very affordable, especially if you know where to look. At I Love Boat Noodles at Sukhumvit 26, for example, you can find delicious boat noodles starting at only 60 baht.
What are Boat Noodles?
Boat noodles are a well-known Thai dish with a rich, flavorful broth. It contains your choice of meat (pork or beef), various spices, meatballs, pig’s liver, and vegetables such as bean sprouts, morning glory, etc. The soup is impactful because it is seasoned with pig or cow blood. That adds to the color and richness of this delicacy.

What to Order at I Love Boat Noodles Sukhumvit 26
You can customize your order the way you want it. First, choose the type of noodle you want. People often go for flat noodles. They’re the thick, long noodles that make the dish more filling.
Then, choose the type of meat you want. You can combine pork, beef, and meatballs. It’s entirely up to you. The more protein, the better!
Lastly, choose the spice level and serving size. Be careful with Thai spice levels, though. You may think it’s not much, but it can be quite spicy for foreigners. Test it out with a low level of spiciness first to be safe.
Top Tip: Order a side of crispy wonton strips for a crunchy texture with every bite!
There you have it! This is a satisfying meal that will get you all filled up for your Bangkok adventure. Whether for lunch or as an afternoon snack, it’s a must-try for those in the city.
