Pad Thai

In Thai cooking, the dish made of stir-fried rice noodles, fish sauce, bean sprouts, tamarind, spices, chicken and/or shrimp is called Pad Thai (or Phad Thai; Paht Thai). Pad Thai is one of the best known Thai dishes outside of Thailand, in the many Thai restaurants around the world. It was introduced as a national food first during the WWII in order to reduce the consumption of rice in Thailand during the war.
