This week, let’s look at one of my favourite Asian fast foods, pad see ew. Loosely translated, it means fried soy sauce, because the big fried noodles are well coated in soy sauce. This particular pad see ew is from one of my favourite restaurants in Luang Prabang, Laos named Puck Luck. This place is just awesome with great atmosphere, service, food and prices. For me, it is just cloth napkins away from fine dining, yet the price is super affordable. They have a big menu and honestly, you could throw a dart at the menu, and most likely you would be very happy with what you got.
And what about the noodles? They are really large, flat noodles fried up with vegetables, sprouts and a bit of pork. This one is topped off masterfully with a fried egg.
At 30,000 kip ($2.40 CAD). it is cheap but not particularly cheap for Laos. I give full marks to Puck Luck for making dining there such a pleasure.
