A very popular Thai dish at my restaurant!  Stir fried rice noodles with shrimp and eggs and garnished with bean spouts, green onions, and peanuts.  Feel free to use chicken or tofu in place of shrimp to change it up.

    I’ve tried making pad thai at home before and it never seemed to come out right. I think I must have been looking at more American recipes because they never had fish sauce or tamarind in them. This one came out perfect! Well worth the trip to the asian grocery for the tamarind.
