Nestled in the northern mountainous area of the Kaho Khao District near Phetchabun Province in Thailand sits a pocket-sized village. Here, a young girl spent her days and nights on her family’s farm, trekking for two hours to get up to their acreage where she foraged whatever she could get her green thumbs on. She would then walk back down for another two hours and serve her family the fresh vegetables she had harvested, which she would steam and serve with sticky rice adorned with a sizzling fried egg. Eventually, at the age of 14, the young girl opened up her own noodle shop in-between school hours. Queues began to wind through the village streets, all eagerly waiting for their chance to try a taste of Saiphin Moore’s notorious noodle soup.
