I haven't had this authentic a Tom Khaa Gai in years. I remember I took a tour about 10 years ago to Bangkok, and I distinctly remember stopping for a nice tom kha as it was raining and my tour guide took us to this hole in the wall, with a local name, I don't even remember what it was, and the had this piping hot soup. Being cold and drenched, this soup was like an elixir. This soup reminded me of just that. This although, was in a thai restaurant run by a thai couple who relocated to Pune. They were super nice, and serve really authentic stuff!
