#Thai Beef Noodle Brew Has Been Simmering For 45 Years, Only.

(NPR) — This Bangkok noodle joint has been a family business for more than 60 years. And the beef soup? That's been simmering for 45.
.

The giant pot of dark brew brimming with beef, spices and herbs sits near the sidewalk on a busy street in Bangkok, where it is constantly stirred by a member of the third-generation-owned restaurant.

The pot at Wattana Panich sits near the sidewalk along a busy street. The simple restaurant occupies two floors of a shophouse that the family bought decades ago. And a good thing too, Nattapong says. They couldn't afford to even rent here now. The pot itself draws crowds, in part because of its sheer size. About 5 feet in diameter and 2 1/2-feet deep, it brims with chunks of beef bumping into one another as Nattapong or another member of his family constantly stirs the thick, dark brew.
