You won’t find Canned Fish with Glass Noodle in the restaurants. It’s a humble Northeast of Thailand style of cooking. The dish like this is cooked at home. It’s easy to make and you can have it on the table in 5 minutes. This is served like a curry or stew, to be had with rice. We usually have it with sticky rice, but it works with jasmine rice as well.
