Khanom Jeen (ขนมจีน) in Krabi: Curry Noodles and Fried Chicken

Khanom Jeen (ขนมจีน) in Krabi: Curry Noodles and Fried Chicken

►Thai Food Guides:

My wife Ying is originally from Krabi, and one of the restaurants she ate at frequently when she was a kid going to school is Khanom Jeen Badom (ขนมจีนป้าต้อม), a long standing restaurant serving a variety of different curries with soft rice noodles known in Thai as khanom jeen (ขนมจีน).

In Krabi, khanom jeen (ขนมจีน) is typically eaten for breakfast or early lunch, and so we headed to the restaurant in the morning for breakfast. The restaurant was busy and hectic as always, and luckily we found some seats at a shared table and ordered.

Here’s what we had:

Khanom jeen nam ya kati (ขนมจีนน้ำยากะทิ) – This is one of the main types of curry noodles, made with coconut milk and deboned pureed fish, and curry paste. The noodles also came with an egg on the side. It was overall quite good, but not too spicy. I enjoyed eating it with some extra deep fried crispy chilies on top!

Khanom jeen gaeng tai pla (ขนมจีนแกงไตปลา) – One of my personal favorites types of southern Thai curry is khanom jeen gaeng tai pla (ขนมจีนแกงไตปลา), a type of curry made with fermented fish viscera. It doesn’t sound too appealing, but I really love it – the pungent salty flavor. This version wasn’t the best I’ve had, but it was still pretty good.

Gai tod (ไก่ทอด ชิ้นละ) – Khanom Jeen Badom (ขนมจีนป้าต้อม) is not only known for their Thai curry noodles, but also for their fried chicken, and the combination of curry noodles and fried chicken goes so well together.

Hor mok (ห่อหมก) – Finally, sitting on our table and begging to be eating were little banana leaf packets of hor mok (ห่อหมก), steamed seafood custard. It was pretty good, again, not the best I’ve ever had, but pretty decent.

Khanom Jeen Badom (ขนมจีนป้าต้อม) is a good restaurant in Krabi. The food is overall a little mild, but still good and pretty budget, and it’s a good local Krabi atmosphere.

Thai Khanom Jeen Rice Noodles and Curry on the streets of Bangkok

Download your FREE Thai street food guide now:

This special Christmas 2011 episode of Bangkok street food is an introduction of Thai khanom jeen rice noodles topped with coconut curry sauce and raw vegetables.

It’s one of my many favorite Thai breakfast dishes!

Khanom jeen are Thai rice vermicelli noodles that are lightly fermented so they remain soft and silky.

They are best eaten with a few scoops of spicy coconut fish curry known as “nam ya kati” and eaten along with freshly chopped bean sprouts, cucumber, string beans, cabbage, and a few herbs and dried chillies!

Enjoy and Merry Christmas and Happy New Years 2011!
