Daily News reported that a new noodle stall in Chiang Mai was offering a nutritious meal for just 5 baht.
They said that these were testing economic times that have seen the price of street food in the north rise from 40 baht to 50 baht on average.
Even the price of sticky rice was going through the roof creating hardship for the people.
Forty six year old Ketkanda Wansuan's noodle stall is bucking the trend. She went online to say that students and school children could get a meal for just 5 baht.
She said that she had been selling in the market but business went down the drain resulting in a move to a new location.
Her and her husband's first day of operation on Saturday was nothing out of the ordinary. But as word spread online by day two the couple were inundated going through 20 kilos of noodles.
