Thai Food 101: All About Pad Thai

One of Thailand’s national dishes, Pad Thai is a stir-friend rice noodle meal commonly offered by street vendors and casual restaurants. Created by soaking dried rice noodles and stir frying them with eggs and tofu, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, tamarind pulp, palm sugar, and red chili peppers, this Thai food dish can also contain vegetables, such as bean sprouts, turnips, and garlic chives, or proteins, such as shrimp, squid, chicken, or crab. It is typically served with lime wedges and roasted peanuts.

Thai foodThe dish is believed to have been introduced to Thailand by either Vietnamese or Chinese traders, but it was altered over time to incorporate elements of Thai food. Pad Thai became very popular in Thailand between 1939 and 1945, during World War II. While its flavor profiles have evolved throughout the years, some street vendors in Thailand still serve the original recipe.

At Bangkok Chef, diners can expect to receive a Pad Thai dish that consists of rice noodles stir fried with eggs, chicken, bean sprouts, and chives, flavored in their original Pad Thai sauce. Fish, shrimp, and beef can be substituted for chicken for a small fee.
