    Big John's Note:

    This is my take on the famous Thai dish, the real version of which I have enjoyed in Thailand on several occasions. Pad Thai is probably the most popular Thai noodle dish in the world. Like many Thai dishes it is sweet, sour, and salty all at the same time(a taste called "YUM"). Those of us that like our food spicy can put a little kick in this dish with ground chili.
