Kanom jeen (also sometimes spelled kanom chin) is a dish that few visitors to Thailand will ever encounter, despite the fact that it’s beloved by Thais across the country. That’s because it’s notoriously difficult to keep fresh and therefore hard for restaurants to prepare in bulk — which means when locals find a good place serving the dish, they come back again and again.

Made from fermented rice noodles, kanom jeen is simultaneously sweet and sour. The rice flour is left overnight in a mixture of water and yeast, fermenting it and giving the noodles a slightly sour tinge. Come morning, the noodles are cooked and then topped with various curries — or even just plain coconut milk
