Pad Thai Is Not Thai
March 5, 2016 4:36am CST
I'm feeling like some dude who had been raising the child of someone else without being told the truth. Pad Thai can be found in every Thai restaurant and is sold by countless street hawkers. How could it be Non-Thai?! Turns out that this tasty dish was introduced into Thailand by the Vietnamese and Chinese. The flat rice noodles used in Pad Thai resemble the Vietnamese Pho. "Kway Teow Pad Thai", includes the Chinese dialect words "Kway Teow" (which means flat rice noodles). Even my favorite Thai dark soy sauce rice noodle stir fry "Chicken Pad See Ew" originated from the Chinese version of "Char Kway Teow". Char Kway Teow's readily available in Singapore so it was easy to connect the dots. What do you like in your Asian noodle stir fry?
