Pad See Ew is what I would consider Thai fast food, right up there with all of our favorite takeout noodle dishes––like lo mein, pan-fried noodles and Drunken Noodles. It comes together quickly as long as all the ingredients are prepared ahead of time and ready to go into the wok! It’s no wonder this deliciously chewy Pad See Ew pan-fried rice noodle is a popular street food in Thailand.
This recipe makes enough for two or three hungry people, but if you really want restaurant or street food quality wok hei flavor in your Pad See Ew, then you may want to cook this dish in two batches. This dish also calls for a handful of Asian pantry ingredients that may be a bit tricky to find–namely fish sauce, Thai soy sauce, and Thai black soy sauce. Pad See Ew is easy to whip up at home once you’ve got the right ingredients.
Now that we’ve gotten the brass tacks out of the way, let’s cook!
