An alternative to the classic dish Pad Thai, this Pad Thai Rod Tum Yum included a sweet, hot and sour sauce with the usual rice noodles, bean sprouts, carrot and garlic chives. We tried this at Pun Pun, our favourite vegetarian restaurant in Chiang Mai where the dishes are always beautifully presented. Note the lime, chilli, ground peanuts and sugar on the side which are important condiments for Thai meals.
