Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles)
Also called “drunken noodles,” pad kee mao is a popular stir-fried noodle dish in Thailand. Mao means "drunk" in Thai, however, the dish can certainly be enjoyed without drinking too much Chang or Singah. But you may want one of Thailand's big three beer choices if your pad kee mao was prepared authentically spicy.
Pad kee mao is often prepared with vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, baby corn, peppers, and bean sprouts. For protein, you can choose from the common choices of tofu, pork, chicken, beef, or seafood.
Pad See Ew (Thai River Noodles)
Pad See Ew is a Thai noodle dish that is made with broad, flat rice noodles, also known as "river noodles." Pad See Ew can be made with chicken, pork, or beef, but otherwise has the same basic ingredients. This noodle dish is truly Asian comfort food at its best; at the same time, Thai river noodles make a healthy and energy-giving lunch or dinner.
Yam Wun Sen (Glass Noodles)
Glass noodles, also known as 'cellophane' or 'bean thread' noodles, are a culinary wonder. Made of mung bean or green pea flour, glass noodles are transparent when cooked and are completely wheat/gluten free.
Glass noodle salad is seasoned with lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, and sometimes ginger. Along with the lightweight noodles, this raw salad is served with chopped onions and tomatoes. Minced meat and seafood are the two most popular options.
Rat Na (Rice Noodles with Gravy)
Chewy, tender fresh rice noodles drenched in a tasty gravy and tender pork, Rad Na is one of the most popular lunch items in Thailand. Rad Na is flat rice noodles and vegetables topped with thick Thai gravy sauce. The meat can be pork, chicken or seafood. You can put some additional sugar, fish sauce, sliced chilies in white vinegar and ground dried chilies on the side when eating.
Although some people complain about the sauce’s consistency, others love the combination of sugar, salt, and spicy (if you add chili) flavors found in this hearty dish. Rad na is another Chinese-inspired noodle dish. To find the most authentic renditions of rad na, try looking for it around Chinatown in Bangkok.
