Bangkok’s famous Pad Thai noodles stalls are often the best starting place for the Bangkok street food. Basic Pad Thai noodles often come as a stir fried mix of egg noodles, beansprouts, eggs and Thai flavorings. The dish is simple, flavorsome and having no added spice makes it popular with those new to extreme heats of chilies. For the added sour and hot of Thai signature dishes you can squeeze over lime and sprinkle chili flakes. Adding ground peanuts gives extra crunch.
Pad Thai noodles is a big favourite with the backpacker frat on Khaosan Road and the area is one of the better places to find Pad Thai noodles with Hawkers offering a mixed variety of noodles and toppings. It can often be found sold side-by-side with oyster pancakes (Hoi Tod) at Bangkok street food.
