Pad Thai on Banana Leaf
This video demonstrates how a well-known street vendor in Kanchanaburi prepares a traditional Pad Thai served on a banana leaf. The main flavor ingredients here are ground peanuts, vinegar, fish sauce, sugar and fresh green onion. Her cart is powered by motorcycle and she can sit on her motorcycle seat as she cooks. As noted in the video, she has received an award for having met the highest standard of cleanliness.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to Pad Thai--please see the video below featuring two other street vendors preparing more versions. We also have our own favorite version of Pad Thai that uses tofu (which we love in Pad Thai!), and takes practice but has a wonderful rich flavor.
