Shrimp, fish sauce, tamarind, eggs, rice noodles, tofu, and bean sprouts are all common in pad thai. We simplified our version. Since we rarely need (or can find) tamarind, we skipped it in the sauce. To make up for it's sourness, we added lime juice. Also in the sauce: brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and a little bit of cayenne pepper. Fish sauce smells pretty funky, but we promise you it's necessary.  SKY GARDEN LONDON 2018 + BUSABA EATHAI
Is there a better bowl of Thai soup noodles in Los Angeles than Rodded’s duck noodle soup? Tender slices of boneless, skin-on duck, a clean-yet-rich broth with just the right undertones of spice and firm egg noodles combine to make it a legitimate question. And Rodded isn’t a one-trick pony in the soup noodle department: Their beef noodle soup, with an equally refreshing broth is an in-house competitor that rivals the balance of savory, rich and spice in its gamier competitor.

Hi Paola! I love your recipes. I wanted to add (as someone that uses Miracle Rice a lot), you can microwave the noodles in order to dry them out and to greatly reduce their odor. I drain them in a sieve, then microwave them for 2 minutes. Drain the water released and then microwave for another minute or two. They’re usually pretty dry and have almost no odor. I know some people are against using the microwave and obviously, this method would not be for them. But for others, like myself, it is very fast, easy, and effective. *the length of time might vary on different noodles* Also, I have a 1000W microwave – as an FYI.

Since 1992, Gene and Jay Potchana have been satisfying Dallas residents with bright Thai cuisine inspired by Jay’s mother, a cook just outside of Bangkok. Though the husband and wife have reconciled their dishes to tamer Texas tastes, the food is undeniably soothing—as is the restaurant interior, with its soft lighting, Thai art, and wooden screens. Try the tender tulip dumplings stuffed with pork and shrimp and Chiang Mai–style sausages perfumed with basil and lemongrass for proof. Don’t leave without sampling the fried-to-flaky-perfection whole red snapper topped with sauce that’s equal parts sweet and burn.

Another Thai popup that’s become permanent due to popular and critical acclaim is Farang in Highbury, North London. Set in a former traditional Italian restaurant that was run by the grandfather of Farang owner Dan Turner, the original decor lends a slightly kitsch air. Chef Seb Holmes has top Thai food credentials having worked at Peckham’s Begging Bowl and Soho’s Smoking Goat before joining Farang. The restaurant offers Modern Thai street food showcasing the very best fresh Thai and British produce. We started with a brilliant version of miang, the classic appetiser of minced prawns mixed with green mango, ginger, and peanuts in a taramind and palm sugar sauce served with betal leaves. Also fantastic is gai prik, delicious crispy boneless chicken pieces, coated in a sweet and salty fish sauce glaze with lime, herbs and chilli sauce. And gaeng massuman neau, a braised beef curry with ginger, peanuts and basil, is melt in your mouth delicious. If you're really hungry or like me, terrible at choosing, go for the feasting menu (£45) which serves up everything on the menu, including dessert (around a dozen dishes) or the slightly more modest tasting option (£40) which offers the same except only one of the three large plates.

I found this website looking for a pad thai recipe using konjac noodles. I made this recipe and it’s actually better than most pad thai I’ve eaten at thai restaurants. I added in some lemongrass and made mine with chicken, shrimp, and tofu. VERY good. I have since also tried another recipe from your blog – the super fudgey brownies and also my favorite brownie recipe! Thanks! Yum Yum Thai Restaurant
From romantic, family-run spots in Beverly Hills to 30-year-old strip mall Valley joints, the bar for Thai food is set so high in this city, you have absolutely no excuse to be eating anywhere subpar. Get some cash (seriously, no one takes cards) and go experience the best this city has to offer. Here are the 25 Thai food spots you need to know about.
When May Chaleoy came to America in 1997, she planned to learn English and then return to her native Bangkok. Instead, she opened Washington’s best Thai restaurant, a tamarind-scented oasis on Vashon Island (a 15-minute ferry ride from Seattle, where her former eponymous restaurant was located). Inside you’ll find 60 seats surrounded by carved teak and mahogany panels and lotus-petal light fixtures imported from Thailand. Still, it’s the food that commands your attention: central Thai classics like green curry (made from scratch with green chiles, Thai eggplant, coconut cream, and shipped-from-the-motherland Kaffir lime skin) and moo satay (yellow curry grilled pork skewers). But the pad thai is perhaps most memorable (and certainly most authentic): servers deliver banana leaf–wrapped parcels of noodles bathed in house-made tamarind sauce, mixed tableside with chiles, Chinese chives, bean sprouts, and bitter banana flowers.

If a restaurant’s focus is northern, expect vegetables, bitterness, and earthy, oily flavors like coconut curry (khao soi), along with heaps of sticky rice. Northeastern (or Isan) tends to be tarter and spicier; order the larb (a spicy minced meat salad) and fermented sausages. Southern Thai is all about pungent, bold curries spiked with turmeric, while central prioritizes balance, best exemplified by traditional pad thai, made with tamarind, lime juice, dried shrimp, and salted turnip or radish—never ketchup or peanut butter, swaps made to satisfy America’s penchant for sugar.

Named for the culturally binding Mekong River, James Beard Foundation semifinalist Khong River House pays homage to several Southeast Asian countries. But we’re partial to its northern Thai plates like peppery green papaya salad and crispy duck with green peppercorn and jalapeño garlic chives—served, naturally, with sticky rice. Credit goes to chef Clayton Miller. Meals unfold in an inspired setting of reclaimed wood, Thai motorcycle license plates, birdcages, fish traps, and chairs made from fishing boats. Even the bar, which stocks 70 varieties of gin, embraces fiery chiles, steeping them in cocktails.

You may have encountered papaya salad, but Ngam's Hong Thaimee encourages you to take it to the next level: "This is a traditional Thai pairing," she explains. "The three are frequently eaten together." The chicken is often skewered, and sticky rice will come with. "At Thai street carts, the spice level is often customized," she explains. "People think Thai food is spicy, but it's a matter of taste." FNUK fOX Intro
You can’t go wrong with Thai noodle soups. They’re flavorful, customizable, and good to the last drop. Although boat noodles -- a pork and beef dish flavored with spices and fresh blood -- are typically the most popular of the noodle soup dishes in Thailand (and worth trying if you’ve yet to have it!), I’d also suggest slurping up a bowl of kuay tiew phet, or duck noodle soup. The broth gets its warm flavor from a blend of cinnamon, star anise, and five spice and delights when the duck has the perfect ratio of meat to fat. I prefer my bowl to contain flat, large rice noodles but the best part about Thai noodle soups is that you can choose your favorite style whether you like vermicelli, egg noodles, or glass noodles.

Not coincidentally, Nahm in London is Thompson’s flagship eatery (he recently opened a second location of Nahm in Bangkok. I’ve only been to the one in London). Many Americans are unfamiliar with Thompson since he has no restaurants or TV shows here, but he has probably done more than anyone to spread authentic Thai cooking outside of Thailand, and in addition to winning all sorts of awards and accolades, he wrote the definitive English language Thai cookbook, Thai Food, plus another on street foods of Thailand. When he expanded Nahm to Thailand - a country where he learned to cook, has lived many years of his life, and still spends several months annually in - there was some apprehension over a “foreigner” trying to cook Thai, despite the fact that he had previously helped run a professional academy for chefs there. To doubt Thompson’s abilities based on the fact that he is not Thai is like arguing that Mario Batali can’t cook Italian or Thomas Keller can’t cook French because they are American.

Because it’s a skyway spot it’s only open from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. weekdays, and because it’s a skyway spot they have a so-so lunch buffet that you should skip.

Having never cooked Thai food or visited Thailand, chef Mark Fischer found himself in a bit of an ah-jaht (Thai pickle) when he decided to open a Thai joint. But after staging at Michelin-starred chef David Thompson’s Sailors Thai in Sydney and multiple research trips to Thailand, Fischer was able to create an experience that is neither authentic nor fusion nor copycat. Rather, Phat Thai is a shameless love letter to Thai cuisine. The green curry with chicken and the pad thai (also called phat thai, hence the name) are each a triumph of flavor. Phat Thai makes its curry pastes in-house—a feat requiring 20 pounds of Thai chiles each week. Wash it all down with chilled Singha; the restaurant buys more than anyone else in the state.

LA has a number of vegan Thai restaurants, and for the most part, they’re terrible. Save for Araya’s Place. The Beverly Grove strip mall joint started in Seattle, and has been around for almost 30 years. And while we’ll always prefer our curry with meat, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t think about their avocado curry more than we probably should. The green curry itself is outstanding, but the avocado mixes so well with it, you wonder why more people don’t serve it. If you’re a vegan, you can’t get much better than this place. And if you’re not, the statement still stands. Churros with Hot Chocolate - Gordon Ramsay
Thailand’s food needs little introduction. From San Francisco to Sukhothai, its profusion of exotic flavours and fragrances make it among the most coveted of international cuisines.

We did this for dinner tonight, we doubled the recipe for our larger family. It wasn’t like the pad thai that I crave, it was very peanut buttery and something just didnt go quite right. It wasn’t bad, but honestly I dont know if we will try pad thai from scratch again. It may not have been the recipe, rather, something really may have gone awryconsidering my husband and I both made it together, but we both followed instructions fairly closely.

Review Body: Awesome. You gotta be really careful with the noodles - forget what the package says, just soak them for 5min in hot water. They will be in the pan for several minutes so if you boil the noodles even for 1 to 2 minutes they will turn out too soggy. I tried with different rice noodles, and the "heavier" ones always come out best (like linguine size rice noodles) The Drawing Room Hair Salon & Barbers London UK for Hairstyles and Haircut

I made this recipe tonight. It had a great taste. I added 1/8 cup of peanut butter for a slightly more peanut buttery taste. Overall, this was spot on regarding taste. It had a great taste, but a few tips for others that may not be as avid chefs (like me). I am not necessarily the best cook, so this reminder is worth it. DO NOT OVERCOOK! The rice noodles are easy to become mush (I have not cooked with them before and the ones I had really should only have been cooked 1 minute and sat 3 for a firmer noodle – they ended up as mush for me because I waited 5 1/2 minutes). I added snow peas and baby corn, but I overcooked those too (yikes – I am such a rookie) because I wanted to cook the sauce items and had already added all the ingredients when I started adding the sauce ingredients. I feel like the sauce items should be mixed together first and heated before adding the noodles, shrimp and tofu, so it cooks properly / blends/heats, but maybe that is just because I wasn’t using a real wok (I don’t have one, so I used a large sauté pan. Overall the flavors were excellent, just would have changed my technique / sequence a bit. It moves pretty quickly once you start cooking so be prepared. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely get it down next time. The Drawing Room Hair Salon & Barbers London UK for Hairstyles and Haircut
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add the shallots and garlic and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pad thai noodles and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to curl and turn pink, about 2 minutes. Scrape the noodles and shrimp to one side of the pan and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the empty side of the skillet. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, about 1 minute. Add the scallions and toss everything together, keeping the eggs relatively intact. Add the fish sauce mixture and stir-fry until the noodles are evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pad thai to a platter. Top with peanuts, cilantro and bean sprouts and serve with lime wedges.

Like Ayada, Chao Thai has settled comfortably, but not passively, into its role as a standard-setter for Elmhurst’s Thai scene. The owners opened a larger second location nearby, but it closed after a few years, reportedly because the chef went back to Thailand. It’s a decade into its run, but there’s still no liquor license — not such a bad thing when you can BYOB your favorite beer — and the dining room is still a tight wedge of a space. But who cares when the service is so warm (if still a bit hesitant about serving spicy or funky dishes to outsiders) and the food is this good? Ayada is where you go when you’re in the mood for curries; Chao Thai is the spot for Thai-style salads. The papaya salad is bright, refreshing, and not too hot; a lemongrass salad packed with chopped chiles, limes, and nuts is punchy and invigorating. Whatever you do, don’t sleep on the yam pla-duk fu, a salad of firm-fleshed young mango (or sometimes green papaya) with a lime dressing and ground catfish that’s been deep-fried into crunchy, wispy bits of fish. It’s one of Queens’ most thrilling dishes. Chao does have range beyond Thai-style salads. To begin, there’s crispy pork belly with Chinese broccoli and oyster sauce, and khao kha moo, that famous Bangkok street dish of stewed pork leg over rice. Here, the gravy is lip-smackingly thick, the tender meat best dipped in the nam pla prik that comes with it, and the rice fluffy. Yum-Yum
I love pad thai and it is such a hassle to have to dine out every time I get a craving and let’s face it, the meal kits from the grocery store are not good. I decided to learn to make it and chose this recipe based on the “amazing” and “easy” comments, and it did not disappoint! So good and if you have any leftover, it’s even better the next day! I followed the recipe exactly using the rice vinegar version and included the peanut butter. YUMMY! Mango Tree is a fine dining Halal Thai restaurant in Belgravia, London
Even papaya salad gets the fine-dining treatment at Uncle Boons, no surprise when you consider the restaurant’s husband-and-wife team (Matt Danzer and Ubon-born Ann Redding) hail from Per Se. Armed with a charcoal grill and rotisserie (no small feat in Manhattan), Danzer and Redding turn out smoky seafood plates with nam prik (Thai chile sauce). The crowd at this art-cluttered tavern is as varied as the menu, which is admittedly regionally unfocused, though it consists mostly of Redding’s family recipes. So it’s not uncommon for traditional massaman curry punctuated with green peppercorns (a drier version than you’re likely used to) and titillating lamb larb to simultaneously hit the table with unconventional mee krob with fried sweetbreads.

Lan Larb is a no frills Thai spot on a random no-man’s-land block below Nolita that stands out because it’s so normal. Every other restaurant in the area spent half their original budget on custom matchbooks and artisanal neon signs, but Lan Larb is fine doing its own thing. If you’re looking for delivery, they’ll bring some very good curry or noodles to your office or home. The restaurant isn’t good for any kind of occasion that calls for ambiance, but, if you just need good food, stop in and try some of their Isan regional specialties, like larb (ground meat salad) or Thai sausage.

Rosa's is a popular mini chain of 13 Thai restaurants across London and I visited the brightly decorated Soho location. Chef Saiphin prides herself on creating authentic Thai dishes reminiscent of the cooking on her family farm back in Khao Kho. While the much loved green curry is perfectly cooked and a firm bestseller here, our favorite was the beef massaman curry packed with potatoes, cashew nuts and fragrant spices. A close second dish was "drunken" flat noodles (guay tiew pad kee mao) stir fried with basil, peppercorn and galangal. And I never tire of the famous stir fried noodle dish, Pad Thai, an excellent version of which is on offer at Rosa’s.

This spice-forward curry from Southern Thailand is one of the country's most famous dishes, and a great break from the green curry routine. "It's a Southern-style curry," explains Alex McCoy of D.C.'s Alfie's restaurant." Its influenced by Arabic cooking in that the spices—green and black cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, and nutmeg—are deeply toasted in the pan before being cooked down with garlic and shallots. "It has a wonderful roasted flavor," he says, adding that it has raisiny-tart notes thanks to tamarind, palm sugar, and fish sauce. A flourish of chopped peanuts adds crunch. Still on the fence? Take it from McCoy: "If you like beef stew, you'd love Massaman curry."

This recipe for Pad Thai noodles with chicken and shrimp is authentic and simple enough for any aspiring Thai cook to make.

Papaya salad is a pretty popular dish that many Thai food aficionados tend to gravitate towards. And understandably so! The typical som tam which is usually found in Thai restaurants is sweet and spicy, sour and refreshing, and contains nutty and crunchy elements. But the version most people overlook contains phu pala, or fermented crab, which adds a whole other element of flavor. Som tam phu pala still contains the fresh, crisp papaya you crave in a som tam dish but it’s paired with pungent, salty, and fishy crab that will no doubt convince you to order a second round.

Most vegetarians would be pretty angry if they found out after eating that their meal contained fish sauce. I would personally consider it on par with using chicken/beef broth.

When noodles are soft enough (but still slightly harder than al dente pasta), rinse them in cold water and drain. Make sure all of your ingredients are set up and divided into equal portions. Note: You’re cooking one portion at a time. Add 2 tbsp. oil to a wok or large non-stick pan. Heat on medium-high, until very hot. Add chicken (if using) and cook for 1 min, then add tofu and garlic. Cook for about 45 secs, stirring frequently. Garlic should now be brown. Stir in noodles, then add 3 tbsp. of sauce mixture. Coat noodles and meat well and stir vigorously to keep noodles from sticking. After about 2 mins, taste noodles to check if they’re soft enough. If not, add 2-3 tbsp. of water and continue to cook for a little longer. Extreme Thai Street Food - CRAZY TOM YUM Late-Night Food Tour in Bangkok, Thailand!
What do they taste like? Shirataki noodles are actually taste-less and will take on the flavors of the dish. Texture-wise is where they vary, as they are more rubbery than your traditional noodles. And tbh, we’re not fans of using them outside the realms of Asian cuisine. But given that the rice noodles used in pad Thai are also on the chewy-side, shirataki noodles do work quite well here. And in our book, definitely worth a try.

But for as many sugarcoated Thai restaurants operating in the U.S., there’s an appreciable number of spots doing it right—especially in immigrant-heavy cities like Houston, where Asia Market encourages diners to personally adjust their dishes with condiments like pickled peppers, fish sauce, and chili sauce (nam prik).

Thailand is composed of four regions with very distinct cultures, dialects, and, of course, food. Nam prik noom is famous in Northern Thailand, where fresh veggies and young chilis are plentiful. This roasted, pounded chili dip -- composed of garlic, shallots, cilantro, fish sauce, lime juice, and green chilis -- has a smoky, garlicky, charred flavor and makes for a wonderful centerpiece in a northern Thai meal. Don’t be fooled by the ingredients -- nam prik noom is a lot less spicy than other regional Thai chili dips and complements sticky rice, fresh and steamed veggies, boiled eggs, and (my personal favorite) pork rinds perfectly.
Thai restaurants are ubiquitous in Seattle, which is good, but dishes like pad thai, green curry, and green papaya salad are often dumbed down to American tastes, which is bad.

Are you sick of those wide rice noodles yet? (No.) "These are basically pan-fried rice noodles with egg, Chinese broccoli, and your protein of choice," says Tila.

In fact, Tila thinks this dish is a shining example of the inherent complexity of Thai food. "I don't think that Americans have made Thai food too sweet—it's just that the spice and acid are often missing. And anyway, if it's not a little sweet it's not authentically Thai." This dish often hits the bullseye. Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant


Shrimp, fish sauce, tamarind, eggs, rice noodles, tofu, and bean sprouts are all common in pad thai. We simplified our version. Since we rarely need (or can find) tamarind, we skipped it in the sauce. To make up for it's sourness, we added lime juice. Also in the sauce: brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and a little bit of cayenne pepper. Fish sauce smells pretty funky, but we promise you it's necessary.  Halal Thai Street Food in Bangkok - AMAZING THAI CURRY and ROTI Food Tour!
Step 5 above is a duplicate of Step 4. Step 5 should read: Spread remaining 1/4C butter on top & bottom of sandwiches & sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Heat large skillet over medium-high. Place sandwiches in a single layer & cook until browned, about 4 min. per side. Transfer to a cutting board & cut each sandwich into 4 pieces. Please correct.

An incredibly popular ‘one plate’ dish for lunch or dinner, fried basil and pork is certainly one of the most popular Thai dishes. It is made in a piping hot wok with lots of holy basil leaves, large fresh chilli, pork, green beans, soy sauce and a little sugar. The minced, fatty pork is oily and mixes with the steamed white rice for a lovely fulfilling meal. It is often topped with a fried egg (kai dao) you will most likely be asked if you would like an egg with it. Be aware that most Thai people ask for lots of chilli in this dish so if you are not a fan of tingling lips, ask for you pad krapow ‘a little spicy’.

When May Chaleoy came to America in 1997, she planned to learn English and then return to her native Bangkok. Instead, she opened Washington’s best Thai restaurant, a tamarind-scented oasis on Vashon Island (a 15-minute ferry ride from Seattle, where her former eponymous restaurant was located). Inside you’ll find 60 seats surrounded by carved teak and mahogany panels and lotus-petal light fixtures imported from Thailand. Still, it’s the food that commands your attention: central Thai classics like green curry (made from scratch with green chiles, Thai eggplant, coconut cream, and shipped-from-the-motherland Kaffir lime skin) and moo satay (yellow curry grilled pork skewers). But the pad thai is perhaps most memorable (and certainly most authentic): servers deliver banana leaf–wrapped parcels of noodles bathed in house-made tamarind sauce, mixed tableside with chiles, Chinese chives, bean sprouts, and bitter banana flowers.

Traditional pad thai sauce includes fish sauce, vinegar, sugar and tamarind paste. Tamarind paste is not easily found at a regular grocery stores so I substituted rice vinegar. If you would like to use tamarind paste, substitute about 2 Tablespoons in place of the rice vinegar in this recipe. I also added a big scoop of peanut butter to my sauce, because I think it gives the whole dish an added creaminess and boost of flavor that I love.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add the shallots and garlic and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pad thai noodles and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to curl and turn pink, about 2 minutes. Scrape the noodles and shrimp to one side of the pan and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the empty side of the skillet. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, about 1 minute. Add the scallions and toss everything together, keeping the eggs relatively intact. Add the fish sauce mixture and stir-fry until the noodles are evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pad thai to a platter. Top with peanuts, cilantro and bean sprouts and serve with lime wedges. SLIDE - First Clips Ever (Parkour and Freerunning)
If only the word “cafeteria” more often described places like this one, where food is ordered by pointing to unlabeled sections of a steam table, à la rice-curry stalls and shops in Thailand. Combos feature two or three dishes plus rice. You never know what you’re going to get but you can be sure it will be delicious, from super-spicy curries to stewed pork belly with tofu.

Lovely Day isn’t the most authentic Thai, but at least they aren’t pretending to be. Sure, there’s a seared tuna sushi roll on the menu, but this is always a charming spot for a casual meal with friends. Also, the vibes are good, and it’s probably the cheapest dinner you can have in the Nolita area that still feels like a “fun night out.” Get the green curry, the hobo noodles, and the ginger fried chicken. If you want something more intimate, there’s also a bar downstairs that serves the food. The host probably won’t tell you about it when you ask for a table, but now you’re in the know. yum yum stoke newington
If the food of Isan, Thailand’s largest and most northeastern region, has become well-represented in New York, we could use more from the south, where it tends to be very, very spicy, thrillingly and complexly so. Kitchen 79, on the border of Jackson Heights and Elmhurst and decorated a bit like a tidy, high-end nightclub (lots of black-and-white leather and glitzy light fixtures), is an excellent place to retrain your palate by familiarizing yourself with classics like gaeng tai pla — a deeply fishy, insanely fiery (not for everyone, but catnip for some) mackerel-based curry bobbing with curls of shrimp, tender cubes of pumpkin, and half-globes of barely crunchy Thai eggplant. Pad ped moo pah, which features wild boar sautéed in spicy curry paste with bamboo, basil, and sprigs of young peppercorn, is an antidote to pork-belly fatigue — it’s nearly as rich, but significantly meatier and bears a subtle gamy tang.

Chef Haidar Karoum and restaurateur Mark Kuller (the duo behind Proof and Estadio) always planned to open an Asian restaurant together. After heading east to eat their way through Bangkok and Chiang Mai in 2012, they returned to D.C., where Doi Moi (meaning “new change”) was born. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant overlooks bustling 14th Street and features a large open kitchen paying tribute to the culinary traditions found throughout Southeast Asia—and its Thai dishes are among D.C.’s finest. You’ll agree if you order the khao soi gai, a spicy chicken and crispy noodle coconut curry with pickled mustard greens that takes three hours to make. Yum Yum

Review Body: Awesome. You gotta be really careful with the noodles - forget what the package says, just soak them for 5min in hot water. They will be in the pan for several minutes so if you boil the noodles even for 1 to 2 minutes they will turn out too soggy. I tried with different rice noodles, and the "heavier" ones always come out best (like linguine size rice noodles)

Pa Ord has two locations, both within very close proximity of each other on Sunset Blvd. And to make matters more confusing, their menus are different. So we’ll make it easy on you - go to the #2 location at Sunset and La Brea. The menu is much bigger here, which means you can find their legendary Tom Yum soup, their boat noodles, and all the curries you could want. It’s also the only location with an online menu for take-out orders.

Tod mun pla is the quintessential Thai appetizer that should be on every table. Essentially a Thai fish cake, the dish is made from fish paste and long beans, and flavored with red curry paste and kaffir lime leaves. The lime leaves give the dish a citrusy and aromatic fragrance. Tod mun pla is usually served with a sweet and refreshing dipping sauce, or nam jim, which contains chopped cucumbers, chilis, shallots, and peanuts submerged in a syrup of sugar, fish sauce, and vinegar. The result is a sweet-and-savory starter that can easily be transformed into a meal over a plate of white rice.


Pad thai is made with soaked dried rice noodles, which are stir-fried with eggs and chopped firm tofu, and is flavored with tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper and palm sugar and served with lime wedges and often chopped roasted peanuts.[2] It may contain other vegetables like bean sprouts, garlic chives, pickled radishes or turnips, and raw banana flowers. It may also contain fresh shrimp, crab, squid, chicken or other animal products. Many of the ingredients are provided on the side as condiments such as the red chili pepper, lime wedges, roasted peanuts, bean sprouts and other miscellaneous fresh vegetables.[3] Vegetarian versions may substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce and omit the shrimp.
