If you have ever traveled to Bangkok, there’s a chance you have seen or even tasted the popular yellow push cart (usually parked in front of 7-11 convenient stores), selling noodle and wantons with red roasted pork. With over 4,000 push carts, CHY SEE BA MEE KIEW in Thailand has made its name for the distinctive noodle taste and delectable soup.
This famous push cart brand has finally arrived in Yangon with 2 push carts in 2 locations-in front of Bogyoke Aung San Stadium near Citymart and the new Chinatown night market.
The cart brings their popular dishes, for example, noodle with red roasted pork, noodle with red roasted pork with wanton. It comes as a choice of dry or soup. Their noodle has a unique taste that you will not find it anywhere else in the city as it is brought from Thailand.
You can also have the red roasted pork with rice topped with sweet sauce and served with Chinese sausage, a slice of boiled egg and cucumber.
One of the highlights that should not be missed is the “pink noodle soup” or “Yen Ta Fo”, comprised of vermicelli, tofu, fish tofu and mushroom in hot pink sauce which is not too hot to bear. With all the dishes, each customer is allowed to personalize their dish with seasonings – sugar, fish sauce, dried chilli, and vinegar.
Yet, our favorite dish at the shop is the soup, served with every dish. The soup is Chinese-Thai style taste, a perfect combination of boiled pork ribs with mushroom and Chinese gourd. It’s boiled to reach the sweet distinct taste.
The size of each dish seems to be small but the portion is generous and priced the same at 1,800 ks–undeniably a good deal indeed!
The atmosphere is chilling especially at Chinatown branch at night and the staff is helpful.
We will definitely return for the noodle and the soup.
