I went to the Thai Restaurant by my residence and ordered the Pad Thai. Listen, this was the best meal that I have eaten, and I am going to make it today!! It is light, yet, filling, the taste is incredible and now I will attempt this dish. Will post my results. I love to cook or as it is said in the African American Community "Throw Down".

Love Pad Thai! Now that I have learned some secrets, I'll try making it at home. Great video, I really enjoy these glimpses into the lives of the chefs! Clearly, my mom isn't the best cook in the world after all!

Authentic video loved listening to dialect, lighting in the video was dark in some areas and yes, we Americans do love our ketchup!

I really enjoyed this video. It's source was authentic and the way the man speaks of his mother's cooking was so sweet. I also appreciated his comparison with American tastes when he spoke of ketchup being used instead of the tamarind. My daughter loves this type of food so maybe I could pull this off with success with this video to help me.
