Create this popular Thai noodle dish at home with this simple yet delish dish, easily adaptable to suit your dietary requirements and tastebuds!
I was introduced to this recipe by my close friend and fellow explorer, Ronée. You can follow her travels (and super cute doggies) on Instagram @tales.trails.journeys.
Originally a Chinese-influenced stir fried noodle dish, but commonly eaten in Thailand (and now in your own home!), here's Ronée's spicy version of this popular dish!
Chilli Pad See Ew
We fell in love with this Thai street food when we travelled in Thailand, buying it from a little lady and her mobile scooter-kitchen! It was love at first bite. Once we returned home I made it my mission to find an authentic recipe to replicate. Over the years I've tweaked it here and there to better suit my husband and I, which means you can too!
We love this recipe because it is simple and budget friendly, given many of the ingredients may already be in your fridge or pantry. If that's the case, you could potentially feed a family of four for with this recipe for under $15!
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
(For the chilli lovers)
A dash of Sirracha sauce

1. Combine all sauce ingredients. Set aside.
2. Asian greens - trim ends and separate leaves from stems.
3. Prepare noodles according to their packet, time them to be ready just prior to using so they don't fall apart in the wok.

5. Add a little more oil and sauté garlic for a few seconds.
6. Add chicken/tofu, stirring occasionally.
7. Once the chicken turns white, add Asian greens stems and cook for a further 1-2 mins

9. Return the wok/frypan to the heat and add the sauce.
10. Once bubbling around the edges, add the cooked noodles and stir to coat.
