Rung Reung Pork Noodle is a famous noodle shop located in Sukhumvit Soi 26 close to Phrom Phong BTS. Even in the early morning, when the restaurant opens its doors, the restaurant is packed with guests who want to enjoy one of their brilliant noodle dishes. Reason enough to write a detailed review about Rung Reung Pork Noodle including the most recommended dishes.
Rung Reung Pork Noodle is a family run business which started by the parents of the current owners. Back then, the soup was sold per street food cart, but the current generation took Rung Reung Pork Noodle to the next level. Nowadays, Rung Reung Pork Noodle is a medium-sized local restaurant that can easily serve fifty people at once. The restaurant does not have the modern looks, so expect your typical aluminium tables, wooden stools and fluorescent lighting. It’s important to know that there are two Rung Reung Pork Noodle restaurants, which are owned by brothers. The restaurants are located next to each other. The exact reason why they separated is for me unknown, but when it comes to food, I could not taste any difference.
The menu of Rung Reung Pork Noodle consists of three soups and one dry noodle. These four dishes come in three different sizes: small (50 THB), medium (60 THB) and large (70 THB). Guest can choose between six different types of noodle: big noodle, medium noodle, small noodle, short noodle, egg noodle and glass noodle. The most popular noodle soup they serve at Rung Reung Pork Noodle is the Tom Yum Noodle with Soup. This is a spicy and strong broth and is served with pork balls, pork sausage and minced pork. There is also a dry version available, which is the Tom Yum Noodle No Soup. The dry version is much spicier than the soup version, as the seasoning is not neutralized by the broth. Both of these noodle dishes are highly recommended. The fact that the restaurant is packed as soon it’s open and locals are getting in line to get some of their delicious noodles, confirms that Rung Reung Pork Noodle serves amazing food. For that reason, Rung Reung Pork Noodle is also listed in our article about the best noodles in Bangkok.
There are two other soups available, the Fishball & Minced Pork Noodle Soup and the Clear Noodle Soup. Personally, I am not a big fan of fish balls and I do believe that many foreigners not necessarily appreciate the flavour and texture of these fish balls. The Clear Noodle Soup is a much safer choice and is the second most-ordered soup at Rung Reung Pork Noodle. Also, if you don’t like to eat spicy food, which what the Tom Yum Noodle with Soup is, then the Clear Noodle Soup should be your choice. At Rung Reung Pork Noodle, there is also the Fish Cracker (20 THB) available. This is deep-fried dried fish skin which serves as a crispy side dish to your noodles. In contrary to the fish balls, I really liked these small crackers and would recommend you to eat your noodles with it.
As said at the beginning of this article, throughout the day it can get extremely busy. Although the service is quick, in the early morning and during lunchtime, you have to wait in line. I would recommend you to visit Rung Reung Pork Noodle between 10:00 and 11:30, and after 14:00. Rung Reung Pork Noodle is open daily from 08:30 until 17:00. Also, the restaurant on the corner, which is smaller, is less crowded than the other Rung Reung Pork Noodle.
Overall verdict: Rung Reung Pork Noodle serves absolute amazing noodle dishes for an amazing price. The fact that people have to get in line in order to enjoy one of their noodle dishes should be the reason why you must visit this restaurant during your trip in Bangkok.
