Noodle Shop Sign (Wednesday Photo)

Noodle Soup, No Noodles

Noodle Soup Sign

Noodle Soup Sign

Traveling in Thailand, it’s a real advantage to be able to read Thai, particularly at restaurants. When I was teaching myself how to read, I got a menu from one of our favorite restaurants – My Choice, in Bangkok – and learned how to read all the dishes. If nothing else, I could order food.

This sign is a good example of why. The second item down is “soup from a noodle shop without noodle.” In essence, noodle soup without the noodles. In Thai it would be called gao lao and is a perfectly good option – broth and the other items, just no noodles.
