“This dish is somewhat inspired by Pad Thai. However, I looked up what actually goes into the traditional dish—rice noodles, eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, peanuts, cilantro, and lime (according to Wikipedia)—and I then realized how far off I was in my original line of thinking. Whether you think of it as Pad Thai or some completely unrelated noodle dish, you will not be disappointed by the taste of this recipe.”
