This best thing I can say about this recipe is that it wont clutter up my recipe box any more. If it had any taste I could say it tasted bad but it doesn't, If it had any life to it I could say it died but it doesn't, if it had any sice to it i could say it is bland but it doesnt. So if you are looking for a tasteless no life meal that has no spice in it at all try this one.

This is not at all authentic. Firstly, you must use palm suger in place of white suger. Secondly, a 1:1 ratio of fish sauce and lime juice should be added right after the noodles are added to the wok. Chopped, fried garlic and "prik kee neuw" (thai hot peppers) give pad thai that hot flavor, which is incidently a western convention applied to this dish.

Phad Thai doesn't need to be spicy to be Phad Thai. This recipe was quite bland and had no typical phad Thai taste. It tastes like an American recipe trying to be Asian.
