  • To cook a good dish, you need a few things.

  • Good ingredients, sharp knives, and time.

  • Here in this restaurant, they have a stew, which has been cooking for, well, a really, really, really, really, really long time.

  • (Speaking Thai) Welcome to Wattana Panich restaurant.

  • (Speaking Thai) My name is Nattapong Kaweenutawong.

  • This isn't your normal Bangkok bistro.

  • They have been serving the same beef stew for nearly five decades.

  • No, not the same recipe.

  • Literally the same soup: same giant pan, same broth, same soup.

  • (Speaking Thai) Our beef noodle soup--called neua tune--is popular in Bangkok because the broth has been preserved and cooked for 45 years, thus giving it a unique flavor and aroma.

  • (Speaking Thai) For 45 years, the broth of our soup has never been thrown away after a day's cooking.

  • (Speaking Thai) We have kept the broth overnight, and then used it to cook the next day's soup.

  • Using an ancient cooking method known in some cultures as Hunter's Stew, this award-winning broth becomes tastier the longer you cook it.

  • (Speaking Thai) The main ingredients added to our noodle broth are stewed beef, raw sliced beef, meatballs, and other internal organs.

  • (Speaking Thai) Of course, the most important thing is the broth.

  • (Speaking Thai) All the ingredients are added to it and then stewed together.

  • Now, you might be asking, "What's that ring around the pan?"

  • Well, that is 45 years of broth spillover.

  • Think of it as a tradition.

  • (Speaking Thai) Wattana Panich restaurant is a family business. My mother is the main chef and cooks the soup in the morning.

  • (Speaking Thai) I usually cook from afternoon to evening, while my wife takes care of everything in the restaurant.

  • (Speaking Thai) I am the 3rd generation, and we have three children. I hope they will be the 4th generation to run the business.

  • And now the most important part, the taste.

  • Mm, mm, mm.

  • Oh, this is delicious.

  • 45 years ... 45 ... Well, if you are ever in Bangkok make sure you check those guys out.
