Pad Si Iw is my very first cooking recipes I can do beside fried egg, omelet, fried rice and MAMA instant noodle. My cousin taught me how to cook this one. You can find this food at any restaurant that cook to order. They must have this as a tradition. 🙂
I cooked this food on that day because I was angry. After the baby fall asleep the day before I cook Pad Si Iw, I went out to buy food. Secretly, I stop at Tesco for my own enjoyment ( a quick enjoyment I would say). Also, I want to look for bread for my lovely husband….
There was no bread!!!.. I should expect that to happen. At the store, they always don’t have what you want, especially when you really want it.
So, I drove back home in a hurry. At the same time, I was thinking about what else we can get for lunch. I passed one restaurant on the way back home and think to myself “if someone dare to open a restaurant, they must know how to cook Pad Si Iw with a good taste.” Undoubtedly, the Pad Si Iw they cook must be good because it is very basic and easy. Any restaurant that cook food to order must cook this dish quite well. Well enough that they feel confident to sell it.
I turn around to that restaurant and got one to take home for Vern. Again thinking, if this Pad Si Iw is bad, I will tell restaurant people to go commit suicide….. hahaha like a Samurai… (fail on the job and punish himself, seppuku or as you know for Hara-kiri.) I will suggest them to do Hara-Kiri.
and it turn out that Pad Si Iw he cooked was very bad!!!!!!!!! but I am not going to tell him to do that. 😀 I was so angry that I waste money bought food from him when I know I can cook better….. kick kick slap slap to myself and went shopping for Pad Si Iw ingredients the next day.
