Bangkok, Thailand, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With its warm, traditional culture, and its exquisite Thai cuisines, you will never want to leave the place. Thailand is also known for its signature dish called Pad Thai, which is a stir-fried noodle dish that is made of rice noodles, shrimp, tofu, bean sprouts, and eggs. Sometimes, Thais add more meat to it, such as pork, chicken, or beef. The noodles are full of flavor, and it is the perfect combination of all three tastes: sweet, sour, and salty. 

Pad Thai is not only famous in Thailand, but also across the world. Many Thai restaurants have been put up in other countries, such as the United States, Europe, and some other Asian countries. Many people love pad Thai because of its traditional flavor, but it has also evolved through time, and many Pad Thai versions have existed.
