Just like how Bangkok has its own rendition of chicken rice, they also have their own version of what we Singaporeans call roast pork noodles. The Thai’s call theirs bak mee moo dang and while it looks pretty similar to Singapore’s roast pork noodles, it has a few differences as well.
Bak mee moo dang consists of Chinese-style egg noodles that are tossed in a savoury sauce and accompanied with ingredients such as leafy greens, pork slices and dumplings. The dish also isn’t hard to find in Bangkok and you can easily get your hands on a bowl of this goodness at any market, street or mall.
While people hear more of the famous Sabx2 Wanton Mee, there are other places in Bangkok that are quite popular for their roast pork noodles too. One of them is Bamee Sawang and for our recent trip to Bangkok, we decided to try it to see how it compared to both Sabx2 Wanton Mee and Singapore’s roast pork noodles.
Sabx2 Wanton Mee isn’t an unfamiliar name and if it’s your first trip to Bangkok, you probably would have been recommended to try their Thai-style wanton mee and pork trotter rice.
This majorly hyped-up wanton noodle store in the heart of Pratunam is famous for their Thai-style wanton mee and many claim it to be one of the best in Bangkok.
We used to be big fans of Sabx2 Wanton Mee but unfortunately, the standards have dropped drastically and it is no longer worth a visit.

Jatujak Green—or commonly known as JJ Green Market—is one of our favourite night markets in Bangkok. Situated near to the popular Chatuchak Market, JJ Green Market is where you will find both locals and tourists indulging in Thailand’s best street food, haggling prices with retail stall owners and chilling the night away with a beer or two.
The crowd starts coming in after 5pm and the place is most happening from Thursday to Sunday nights. If you are not planning to take a cab because of the peak hour jam, you can take a slow walk from Mo Chit BTS Station.
