We had the tom yam beehoon which comes with minced meat, pieces of deep-fried fish and garnished with plenty of mint leaves. The broth is appetizing with delicate balance between light spicy and sour flavors.

For the clear broth, we chose to have it with vermicelli, minced meat, deep-fried fish and heh-ko bak (mantis shrimp). The ingredients bring out seafood sweetness and meaty flavors. Garnished with plenty of chives and fried garlic, the bowl of vermicelli is enjoyable with the ingredients dipped in soy sauce with freshly cut chili padi.

Although the clear broth is flavorful, it is less popular compared to the tom yam version.
