A big fan for noodle? If you get to be in Thailand these following noodle dishes, from a cooked-to-order restaurant, can’t be missed from your food list. They are ones of the most common menus among locals.

What is Ma Ma Pad Khee Mao? Spicy drunken instrant noodle with basil

Many people often confuse this dish with Pad Ka Prao since the ingredients are almost the same. As you might have already know from my previous article, Pad Khee Mao is a drunken Pad Ka Prao which the chef go la la la and toss all the fresh herbs/ chilis he has in the pan and cook this dish.

2. Suki Haeng สุกี้แห้ง

What is Suki Haeng? Stir-fried glass noodle with Suki sauce

One of my favorite Thai noodle dishes. The stir-fried glass noodle with morning glory and seafood is seasoned by a special Suki sauce, made with Chinese pink tofu. The result? It’s sweet and spicy. There are many textures within this one dish; crunchiness from the veggies, chewiness from the seafood, and tenderness from glass noodle and egg…. my my I’m drooling now lol

3. Ma Ma Tom Yum ต้มยำมาม่า

Feel like having Tom Yum soup without rice? Instant noodle can be the substitute. From a famous restaurant in Sam Yan area, this is one noodle dish Thai people has become popular lately. It’s very easy to make at home with instant noodle (Tom Yum flavor) as well or eating the real Tom Yum instant noodle soup at a cooked-to-order restaurant. Yummy!

What is Macaroni Pad Sauce Ma Khua Ted? Stir-fried macaroni with ketchup

Some westerners will be like ‘Oh Yuck’ with this noodle dish. lol I know I used to be like that too, even though I’m from Asia. My American often say that ketchup is only for fries, not for everything. But, many Thai people like this stir-fried macaroni with ketchup and shrimp though…it’s sweet and sour…I think it’s like you’re eating Orange Chicken, no? xD

5. Sen Yai Khua Gai เส้นใหญ่คั่วไก่

What is Sen Yai Khua Gai? Stir-fried wide rice noodle with chicken

You might have to ask the chef first whether the place has this rice pappardelle. If they do have the rice noodle, you surely can order this Khua Gai. Khua (คั่ว) means to toss. Gai is chicken in Thai. Many restaurants like to add special lye water squid (ปลาหมึกรอบ) to Khua Gai along with chicken, so it gives a new texture and crunchiness.

6. Spaghetti Pad Gaeng Keaw Whaan สปาเก็ตตี้ผัดแกงเขียวหวาน

What is Spaghetti Pad Gaeng Keaw Whaan? Stir-fried spaghetti with green curry paste

Some cooked-to-order places even have spaghetti, but don’t try ordering a carbonara though…they probably don’t have the menu. Even if they do, ordering western pasta dishes in a local Thai restaurant isn’t a very good idea. Try this fusion dish and you’ll absolutely want for more.
