Bangkok: Talad Rot Fad Train Station Night Market Lobster Noodles

One of our travel mates told us that he saw this really delicious looking lobster noodle that supposedly should be very famous on Facebook and... with that we made our way here in search of this Lobster Noodle he said.

We took cabs to Talad Rot Fad Train Station night market. It was about 20 minutes drive without much traffic from our hotel, Centrepoint Pratunam over.

This was my first time here and I kinda like this place. It feels a little like Taiwan's night market, which loads of food stalls and clothes/shoes basically it's just like an open market which is more organized and the prices aren't too expensive compared to Asiatique.

After much search, we finally located the lobster noodle stall. It was really hard to find because there is not a single english word, no signage and just... right at the end of the market. When you come in and see the signage, just go by the extreme right lane all the way down, you will see a white board, that's the one. No English words so forget about trying to look for it.

Stall owners can barely speak English too. So most of the time we had to point and point. Lobster is only served when you order the big pot which will cost you 1,500THB and it feeds 4 pax. The portion is not that generation because my mom, me, my cousin and my aunt could finish the whole pot too so I guess 4 hungry guys must need some 'top-up' with the snacks next door.

This is roughly how it looks like from my view.

40baht hugeass ice lemon tea.

And here's the lobster yellow noodle, with sotong, fishcake, prawns, fish and.... that's about it. Of course, tom yum soup base which is good. But, we were damn thirsty thereafter. Lol!

I took out my measuring tape to measure and sure it was 27 cm long. Hahah!

If you haven't been to this market, I would say it's worth to come once because the clothes here are not bad. I did a fair share of shopping here. Like 1 sandals, 2 dresses, 3 tops and 3 skirts.

So while you're here for the shopping, there's live band and pub too. Have a drink or something, and try the lobster noodles if you have 4 pax else, the normal noodles shouldn't be too bad, just no lobster.

Used to have public transport here, but I guess now just take a cab and tell them the name of this place.

Opening hours: 
Not sure about it, but 6pm should be safe and I heard they close at 12 midnight.
