Blood Cake Soup (Soi Chula 50)

This dish is probably strange for those foreigners, who do not eat entrails. Actually, western delicacy, especially in the UK and European countries, also serves this with its English breakfast. So how’s Asian?

In Thailand, we normally serve a piece of blood cake in noodle soup. The cake doesn’t have a strong taste. In contrast, its texture adds a nice touch to the soup along with other entrails, including liver, marinated pork and green lettuce. While the soup itself was made from pork stock, flavored with salt, garlic, sugar, coriander and pepper. The more spicy the more tasty.

You can get this stall via Soi Chulalongkorn 15 from Rama 4 Road, passing Ei Pochana (a Chinese estaurant), which has a small alley go to the Chinese court inside. Then turn left, walk down and finally you’ll confronted this exotic food stall.
