Thailand is extremely famous for food, and when it comes to fried noodles, a certain dish by the name of Pad Thai often gets the spotlight. But there are a few more fried noodle dishes to choose from like pad kee mao, and the dish that’s being highlighted in this street food video right here: Pad See Ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว). This noodle dish all begins with rice noodles, not just any rice noodles, but they are called sen yai, or wide rice noodles. These noodles are prepared fresh in sheets and then sliced into centimeter or so wide strips.

It takes a super hot fire to make a perfect plate of Pad See Ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว), the fire has to be flaming to give the noodles the char fiery flavor they need. Once the wok is heated to the desired level of heat and the oil is smoking, pieces of pork (or chicken if you order it) are tossed in and whirled around for a few seconds. The green vegetable kale, known as kana in Thai, is then tossed in with the pork and stir fried for a few seconds. The the rice noodles enter the furnace of a wok, slowly added to the pan while being stirred so the sticky noodles don’t clump together. A few more moments of stirring and in goes the seasoning, mostly including light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, and pepper. Finally for the finishing touch, an egg is cracked right into the middle of the noodles. The noodles are whisked around for a few more seconds until there’s a nice smoky char on the contents and then it’s scooped onto a plate and ready to be served.

Pad See Ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว) is popularly eaten with a spoonful of chili flakes tossed on top, and a few scoops of chili vinegar. Or you can choose to eat it just plain to enjoy the delicious flavors from the cooking. I’ve had quite a few plates of this Thai stir fried noodles dish in Thailand, but my favorite version comes from small shophouse style restaurants where the chef uses a high flame and really scorches the noodles and egg to perfection. When you’re looking for a tasty single plate Thai street food meal, don’t forget about pad see ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว). In Bangkok, it’s a dish that’s available at nearly all hole in the wall stir fry restaurants throughout the city.

I love ผัดซีอิ้ว too

fattymoko says:

The Chinese call that aroma from the charred wok, "Breath of the Dragon" which I find accurately descriptive.  Bold, flavorful, not burned but almost the remnant of the fire.  This dish looks delicious as well as has a great balance of veg, protein to starch.  Love this video!  Thanks for all your postings!
