*Pad Thai*

pad thai recipe

After having Pad Thai at one of my favorite restaurants downtown, I always wanted to find a recipe to make it. And I mean a good recipe. Most of them are mediocre. I stumbled upon this recipe, altered it a bit and tried it out. It turned out to be quite delicious  The only thing I did not like was the sauce. I am a huge sauce nut and have to have some kind of sauce for whatever I am eating. The noodles tasted a little dry because there was not enough sauce. I noticed squeezing the lime onto the noodles helps a lot, so that is a must! Next time I would double the sauce recipe or find a peanut sauce to go with the noddles. Overall, this satisfies my pad thai craving and is delicious. The limes are a  must for this dish!
