Pad thai on the street

Pad Thai is a dish of stir fried rice noodles with fish sauce, tamarind juice, combined with bean sprouts, chicken/eggs/shrimp and garnished with crushed peanuts, coriander and lime.

As one of Thailand's national dishes,
it's fairly easy to spot a Pad Thai vendor on Bangkok's street
and a portion of street Pad Thai is around 20-35 THB (less than a dollar).

I spotted this vendor on soi Ram Buttri and he cooked the Pad Thai in less than 5 minutes, amazingly fast but was also left me clicking madly on my camera.

almost as fast as the lighting speed!

et voila ...
a 5 minutes Pad Thai topped with crushed peanuts and spicy dried shrimp.


  1. Hi! Thanks for your comment on I'm glad you like my post! Your photography is truly amazing. Keep up the good work! I just finished teaching a cooking class tonight, and taught the students how to make Thai fried rice that I ate in Thailand years ago! It will be on the blog tomorrow.

  2. Hilarious--about the fish sauce spill! I bet it took days to fully remove the odor. I had a similar "raw-chicken-in-the-back-of-my-car" incident....horrid!
