1. Radh Nah
This dish is made with wide rice noodles. They are stir-fried with broccoli and Chinese broccoli in a brown soybean gravy.
It has a mild flavor and is the most-ordered dish in Thailand.
2. Phad Kee Mao
The literal translation of phad kee mao is drunken noodles. There are two reasons for the name. They believe these spicy noodles are the perfect cure for a hangover. On the other hand, this dish pairs well with an ice-cold beer.
Wide rice noodles are stir-fried in a roasted chili sauce and tossed with egg, sweet Thai basil, tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, and onions.

The recommended garnish of sliced chili peppers and cilantro kick this dish up a notch.
5. Ba Mee Hang
