There's a local Thai restaurant in LA called Jitalda. For those of you who don’t live in LA, it’s easily one of the best Thai restaurants in the city and it’s WAY out there in East Hollywood. It's a trek to make it out there, but it’s worth every minute of fighting traffic. Their menu is extensive and their food will knock your socks off. It's packed with so much flavor and heat, there is absolutely not chance you leave without sweating a little. Their curry noodles are other worldly in my opinion and I crave them on a regular basis during these winter months. The recipe below for Curry Coconut Noodle Soup is a very easy interpretation of their noodles and I'm HOOKED.

I've been making this Curry Coconut Noodle Soup for years and everyone loves it, including my 2 year old (I just skip the Fresno peppers for her as a garnish!)

The base of this Curry Coconut Noodle Soup is an incredible broth that doesn’t take too long to whip up, and then you just load it up rice noodles to soak up some of the sauce and thicken it up and top it with all sorts of herbs to give it that bright finish. And if you want to add some extra protein, you could easily add some shredded rotisserie chicken or poached shrimp to this and call it a day. It's perfection in a bowl, promise!

    Wow, thank you for this! It is the most delicate, delicious soup I have made in a long time - and so easy! I added poached shrimp to my bowl. I can't get enough! The only issue will be if my family likes it and I have to share ha ha!

  7. Hi! Any tips on storing the extra? I'm only cooking for one 🙂 so I'm wondering if you recommend making a half batch or storing the extra? Just concerned about the noodles continuing to absorb liquid and disintegrating overnight .

    1. Noodles def absorb the extra - if it was me (and this is what I have done), I have made it with only some of the noodles, eaten that portion and then reserved the rest of the liquid for another day. On that new day, I warm it on the stovetop with a few extra splashed of stock and add fresh noodles to cook! voila - perfection!

  8. This was delicious! The noodles soaked up most of the liquid but we still loved it. I added paprika, cinnamon, cloves, and cayenne to punch up the flavors a bit and my friends were raving over it.

  9. 5 stars
    This was so tasty and so fun to make at home!! I love spice and this was VERY spicy. I may have overdone it though on the curry paste, but it was still amazing! Can't wait to make later in the winter when it's really cold.
