During my junior semester abroad, I lived in London – South Kensington, to be exact. There was this little Thai chain restaurant called “Thai Square” that I fondly remember. They might remember me – I spent all of my pounds there…. lbs and GBPs! My roommate and I frequently spent a weeknight there to indulge in a thai curry or a piping hot plate of pad thai. Like pasta, noodle dishes are another comfort food. Who says no to pad thai?
I’m not going to lie, I struggled with this recipe. I made it for Lu and hated it. He slurped up the whole bowl, but I could barely get down a forkful. Too limey, too fishy, too peanut-y, too watery, too bleh! I literally made this sauce SIX (6) times before I finally arrived at a combination that I found pad thai-y enough. Perfectionism isn’t one of my best qualities, you see.
