A Taste Of Thailand

Thai stir-fried noodles actually have roots in Chinese cuisine. It is thought that Chinese trader brought the dish to Thailand’s old capital Ayutthaya. Although Bangkok is the capital of Thailand today, you can still visit the old capital and get traditional stir-fried noodles while wandering around the ancient ruins.

If a plane ticket is not in your future, don’t worry! You can still make an authentic version at home from ingredients you can find right at your local supermarket.
