Only rating this 4 stars because it needs work. That said, it's the closest thing I've found to the real deal online. Here's what you need to do to make this authentic: sub fish sauce for soy sauce (however, throw in a little soy sauce with the egg & tofu for color), sub lime juice for vinegar, MUST use tamarind pulp (if you can't find, you might be able to find tamarind chutney which will work just fine), use canola or peanut oil, add extra garlic, use extra firm tofu (water completely squeezed out), use unsalted dry-roasted peanuts and only use half of what is called for here -- that was way too much, skip the radish if you can't find it, add 1/4 cup chopped greed onions with the chives, sub chili powder for the paprika, and add dried red pepper flakes for heat. It's really, really easy to make and you will honestly think it's on par with your favorite local Thai joint. Enjoy!
