Pad See Ew

Sadly, there is no decent Thai delivery place in my town. So i have to take matters into my own hands!

Thankfully, Pad See Ew is both the Thai dish I like the most and is dead easy to make. Slice up three things, boil some noodles, and fry em up with some sauce. Bang! bliss.

Some of the traditional things you need for this dish can be tough to find. To make it “right” you need fresh wide rice noodles. These require a special trip for me, so I just go with the not quite as wide or delicious boxed variety. They are good enough. Also hard to find is dark soy sauce, so I add sugar to make up for the lost sweetness. Despite all that, this still beats the pants off the local joints.
