Chicken Featured Noodle Seafood

Pad Woon Sen (Thai Stir-Fried Glass Noodle)


Ahh yes, Thai food to nurse my Thailand Withdrawal Syndrome. It’s not the same as actually being in Thailand, but this will satisfy for now. Since I just got back from a short trip from Bangkok, I stocked up my pantry with sauces from the local supermarket. So this is meal will taste as authentic as it gets! 

I went on one of the best shopping trip with the BFF about a week ago, to my favourite shopping destination, Bangkok. It was awesome because we had the same goal in mind, plus she was great company! She has been my BFF for close to 20 years now (man, do I feel old!). We pretty much have a language of our own, and know each other’s idiosyncrasies. In other words, we are pretty similar in many ways but appreciates each other’s differences too. Or what you’d say ‘same same but no same’. Now, I can’t wait for our next trip to Thailand for more great food and even better shopping!


For now, I’m just going to enjoy my homemade Thai food. This dish got polished off as quickly as it took me to make it. With meals like this being so simple & speedy to make, not to mention cheap! I sometime wonder why am I paying $12 for a similar plate at a restaurant when I can feed my whole family for less than that! The girls and husband loved this dish, even my new helper told me that after having worked at our place and learning how easy it is to make different cuisine. She doesn’t like eating out on her off days any more. She also doesn’t enjoy the unhealthy, greasy, or overly salty taste of outside food now that she’s eating what I cook for the family.

      Hi Kayla, I like my food spicy as well. What I usually do is to serve it with chopped thai chilli in fish sauce & garlic or some hot pepper flakes. You can also add some hot chilli peppers while stir-frying as well. Add it together with the garlic.
