Back to Basics, make delicious Thai food at home.  This dish dates to the time of King Rama 5, about 140 years ago. Originally it was made with beef, but nowadays pork and chicken are often used. Praram is a name for the God Rama, or King Rama, in The Ramkian. The Ramakian is the Thai version of an Indian Hundu epic written 2000 years ago. Long Song translates as 'take a shower'.

Praram Long Song is a popular dish in American Thai restaurants. Our recipe it's quite delicious. Sometimes called Swimming Rama, you can use broccoli, spinach, or other greens of your choice.

Here we have a fairly new style of Mama, made using premium chantaboon rice stick noodles. Serving size is 1.94 oz dry, which is a bit larger than most Mama noodle packs. One bowl can fill you up, and the pho chicken is just as you might hope for--a chicken broth with a spice packet to add if you prefer some chilli heat.

Add the three separate spice packets, then add hot water, and let sit for 3 minutes.
