As brothers living between NYC & Bangkok, Vincent and Andrew Kitirattragarn grew up eating differently. They created Dang—แดง, named after their Mom—to share uniquely Asian-American snacks with the flavors and ingredients they love, including their famous original Coconut Chips, their Thai street snack-inspired Thai Rice Chips, and their Keto Friendly Bars.
The dish has its roots in the 1930s, when the Thai government was looking for a way to reduce the country's dependence on rice and promote the consumption of other types of noodles. In an effort to make noodles more appealing to the Thai people, the government enlisted the help of a chef named Phraya Ratana Kosalathep, who came up with the idea for Pad Thai.
Now that you know a little bit about the history of Pad Thai, it's time to get cooking! This recipe is not only delicious, but it's also nutritious and gluten-free.
This delicious Pad Thai recipe is sure to become a new favorite in your household. And don't worry, if you're not a fan of shrimp you can easily substitute it with tofu for a vegetarian version of the dish.
