Easy Pad Thai Recipe
I recently went to Thailand and one of the best thing I enjoyed during my trip is the Thai cuisine. I fell in love Thai food and I thought it will be great to recreate my favorite dishes at home, so I attended Cooking with Poo. It’s a cooking school run by the famous Khun Poo and one of TripAdvisor’s best rated activities in Bangkok. One of the dishes I learned from her is this Easy Pad Thai Recipe, it’s Shrimp Pad Thai that’s super easy to make and the result is so delicious. If you don’t have plan to go to Thailand yet, you can get Khun Poo’s cookbook Cooking with Poo so you can make her delicious Thai recipes at home.
