Ode to Beef Noodles

beef noodles at Anamai

I like beef noodles
Strands float in a beefy sea
Meatballs set adrift

Some like ‘nam thok’ broth
Thickened with blood from the cow
A red mass of spice

But clear broth still rules
Wrought from days of boiling bones
Go to Anamai

(Luk Chin Anamai, 3 Soonvijai Soi 7, New Petchburi Rd.)
