Street Vendor Video: Pad Thai



  • This video demonstrates how to make a Classic Pad Thai based on the original style which uses fresh lime (served on the side at the end) to add sour flavor but no tamarind. The main flavor ingredients here are vinegar, fish sauce, sugar and ground chile. The chef here is very well known in the area of Nakorn Pathom, having an excellent reputation. As a result, she's always cooking for a steady stream of customers. Her shop name is Pad Thai Buang Yuan, noting the two recipes she specializes in (Buang Yuan is a type of Thai omelet).

    The possibilities are endless when it comes to Pad Thai--please see the video below featuring a street vendor preparing two other 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.

    Thank you for posting these videos. I want to go to Thailand just to eat all those marvelous dishes. I am retired and probably go there in January 2018. I am going to save the link to this page so i can read it again when I am ready to go. Thank you.
