|Street Hot Pot|
On the street, the broth is then kept hot and they will make your soup to order by adding various types of noodle (my favorite of which is thin rice noodle said "sen lek" or dumplings and many different types of meat and vegetables. The meats on the street are mostly chicken and the entire bird will be available, including all the internal organs.
The soup served on the street is nearly entirely eatable; however the soup in the restaurant will often be served with many things that are placed there for flavor and not to be eaten. This includes large pieces of lemon grass, green lemon leaf and ginger. I personally took a long time to learn which pieces are not meant to be eaten and have grown to be one biggest fans of all varieties of tum yum soup.
Jum zap soup is served with the stock broth described above with red onion and ground rice, but served in a hot pot served with raw meats and vegetables and is cooked by fresh by the diners.
The soups are all good and I suggest you try them all but just be careful some can be extremely spicy.
