If you love Thai food and have eaten at Thai restaurants, it’s very likely that you have tried Pad See Ew, or Thai fried rice noodles with soy sauce, meat or seafood and vegetables. Pad See Ew is one of my favorite Thai noodle dishes, it’s delicious and utterly satisfying. I can eat it almost every day.
Pad See Ew is basically a Chinese recipe but adapted to local Thai tastes. If you go to Thailand, you can find it sold by street vendors all over the country. A homemade Pad See Ew is very easy, if you follow an easy and tried-and-tested recipe such as what I have here.
My Pad See Ew recipe calls for fresh or dried rice noodles. You can get them at Asian stores, fresh is always better. The seasonings are oyster sauce, fish sauce and sweet soy sauce. I love eggs in my Pad See Ew, but you can make it without the egg. Enjoy!
