Pad Thai In Local Street, Pattaya

Back to my Bangkok trip (seems like endless, right).. we went to Pattaya for a day trip and during dinner, we requested to eat Pad Thai.   And our Bangkok tour guide took us to a local road side stall to taste this authentic Pad Thai...

Ok, what is Pad Thai?  It is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as a street food and at local eateries in Thailand.  Here are some pictures I took while we were waiting to be served....
Along the road in Pattaya, our tour guide parked his van and told us to alight...
He told us that this was his favourite Pad Thai stall....
 Quite popular among the locals....
Obediently we quickly took our seats and let our tour guide did all the ordering....
Immediately after we sat down, a few plates of the above were laid on our table...
"Hey, what's this for?  Raw eating?"   Yumsssss...
Leaving the raw materials aside, I went to "steal recipe...."  hahaha....
hmmmm....very busy at the wok....
 Lots of shrimps..... best!
Finally our food came....
From left, our tour guide and driver.... 
See the plates of raw vegetables?
Those were supposed to be taken with Pad Thai...
Introducing .... PAD THAI WITH SHRIMPS...
For those allergic to seafood, this is another option.... 
Crispy fried lard with BBQ meat (char siew)
So how's the taste?
Well, I wouldn't mind having Pad Thai again..
The taste is totally different... and he Lard is really someting! :)


  1. one of the food that i liked most when i went to Bangkok the other time.. ordered the same thing at the same place for two consecutive nights, haha~~ :D

  2. it's basically thailand char koay teow right? LOL

  3. Pad Thai looks good, I wanna try it too if I go Bangkok!

  4. I never knew what Pad Thai is, and now you have told me! I also never knew it was noodles, oh so yummy. There are many Thai places here, it is all the rage.

  5. I like!!! Char kway teow, Thailand style. Hmmm...the char siew meat looks like the imitation ones people here serve with kampua noodles... Hehehehehe!!!!

  6. Char kway teow, rite.Looks good. From the look and colour of the char siew, it gives the impression of imitation ones.

  7. kathy: Jom, lets go! :)

    sk: like what I did when I ate their soup noodles!

  8. ken: yeah, their special style!

    hayley: must eat local food when u r there!

  9. ginny: then you must try it over there! :)

    stp: because of the red colour? :)

  10. irene: Arthur and you said the same.. hahaha...

    sharon: Yes, good to try other countries' food!

  11. That is interesting. It's like eating rojak. :D

  12. How does Pad Thai compare to our local Char Koay Tiao?

  13. tekkaus: rojak?? :)

    mun: their sauce is definitely different.. theirs is more on the lime and sweet.. ours is savoury.. :)

  14. I must try it should I go bangkok one day..

  15. seriously you'll eat those raw?
    in my case i'll be jumping unto those
    meals at the bottom instead of trying those

  16. weekend: yes... i did!

    wenn: Must try most of the food.. :)

    mecoy: I tried the young banana shoot! :)

  17. I love too!! especially if its not too spicy...nice :)

  18. Oo..the first time I had Pad Thai also in BKK. I fell in love with this local cuisine.


Thank you, readers!
