A prominent noodle shop in Bangkok was forced to close its doors permanently last month after more than 80 years of selling fish meatball noodles. “I’ve never seen ingredients this expensive before,” said the proprietor of the shop. Thawat’s noodles are even cheaper than 7-Eleven’s famous 6 baht Mama noodles, which come in a variety of – generally fishy – tastes. Mama noodles have been marketed at 6 baht each packet since 2014, but the price will shortly rise to 1 baht per packet, a 50 satang increase.

Despite the fact that the cost of ingredients is higher than it has ever been, a restaurant in Chiang Mai’s northern province assures that 3 baht noodles will continue to be available. The restaurant’s owner, Thawat Pirata, stated that he has not raised the price of noodles in 34 years and has no intentions to do so in the future. According to the firm, the price increase is necessary to offset rising transportation and raw material costs.

According to the 64-year-old proprietor of Kway Teow Sam Baht – or “3 Baht Noodles” – a noodle shop in Muang district, increased ingredient prices have cost the diner 30 percent of its revenue in recent months. Despite rising costs of ingredients, Thawat promises to keep his noodles at a reasonable price of 3 baht to help others who are struggling in the current economy. For that money, you could eat ten bowls and stay on budget.
