Bring Thai flavors into your kitchens without investing in a collection of Asian spices only to use them once or twice. When preparing the sliders, feel free to experiment with different garnishes, but note that the sliders are very flavorful as prepared and novice cooks might want to start with the basics. — Vivian Doan, MyDailyFindChicago
Everyone loves chicken pad thai, Thailand's deliciously spicy noodle dish. The noodles used are rice sticks, which, besides being delightfully chewy, are gluten-free (for those allergic to it) and "cooked" simply by soaking. My version is easier to make than many others — I've eliminated the traditional tamarind, which is hard to find and fussy to prepare — but nothing is lost in the flavor department, I promise. I include the traditional scrambled eggs, but you can omit them, if you like. You'll still have a wonderfully satisfying dish.

Here's a refreshing take on traditional pad thai. Chef Hong Thaimee of Ngam Restaurant located in New York City, serves up modern comfort food from Thailand. This version of pad thai forgoes the usual noodles and makes use of thinly sliced green papaya. To get the slices you need, a mandolin is most helpful. Just be careful!
This Pad Thai recipe is how you actually find it in Bangkok and comes from testing hundreds of different variations from food carts all over the city. Pad Thai is the ultimate street food. While "street food" may sound bad, food cart cooks are in such a competitive situation, with such limited space, ingredients and tools they need to specialize in a dish or two just to stay in business. The best of these cooks have cooked the same dish day-after-day, year-after-year, constantly perfecting it.This recipe is courtesy of ThaiTable
Pad thai is quite possibly the reason many Americans have fallen in love with Thai cuisine. The sweet, sour, and salty noodles stir-fried with vegetables, dried shrimp, and oftentimes chicken is a good introduction to the basic and addictive flavors of Thai cooking.
This noodle dish is a basic stir-fry. The trick to just about any stir-fry is to prep everything you can in advance. In this recipe, for example, you'll need to add turnip, dried shrimp, and tofu in quick succession, so make sure to have everything in your work area organized and ready to go before you start cooking.
Shrimp pad thai has always been a favorite delivery/takeout food item — it's just always seemed a little too complicated, too involved a dish for me to attempt a homemade version. But in the spirit of pushing the boundaries of my cooking comfort zone, I decided to take a stab at it. And I encourage you to as well. Seriously, if I can make it, so can you.
