Chicken pad thai makes a great weeknight meal when you are looking for something special but don’t have a lot of time. Forget take out. This is better. And it will be piping hot when you sit down to eat.
I love bun cha. Vietnamese grilled pork and rice noodle salad. The moist and flavourful pork. The cool rice noodle and fresh herb salad.
Thai beef stir fry is long on big south east Asian flavours but short on cooking time. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal when ho hum just isn’t going to cut it.
Miso ramen with chashu pork is one of the world’s great noodle dishes. Up there with pad thai, laksa, and pho. And this is an easier way to make it. Big pork broth flavour without the big pork broth effort.
Khao soi is this incredible curried coconut soup from Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. It’s not famous. Not on a lot of Thai menus. But it should be. Crazy tasty stuff.
Mi bo kho is beef stew with a delicious Vietnamese twist. Wonderful, rich beef stew with the haunting flavours of lemongrass and star anise.
