From Thailand with Love: We Review Hong Kong’s 10 Best Pad Thai

From Thailand with Love: We Review Hong Kong’s 10 Best Pad Thai

Some say that Thailand’s signature dish Pad Thai of rice noodles, beansprouts, prawns, spices and peanuts was handed down from the old Ayutthaya rulers of Thailand which lasted from the 14th to 18th century. Some say the idea came from Chinese visitors to Thailand, where the locals added their own ingredients and turned it into the lovely dish it is today.

Whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure, Phad Thai noodles are one of the most popular Asian dishes, and one of the best known ones too. Great for a snack, or lunch, they can also be adapted to taste, and to what’s in the cupboard. However, here’s a comprehensive look at where to get your noodles, whatever the occasion or time of day.
