And to my surprise, fish sauce didn't taste or smell as bad as I thought it would. It was all in my head! Infact, it gave the soup such a gorgeous taste, that it definitely is one of THE main ingredients for this recipe. And trust me, it doesn't smell fishy at all!
On our flights to Bangkok, after long, insane crazy working hours, we used to go across the street from our hotel into this small road side restaurant, where I had tasted this soup for the first time. And it definitely became one of the key dishes to de-stress with :)
Hope You enjoy it as much as we loved slurping it!
