Chicken Pad See Ew

This recipe called for sweet soy sauce. I had never heard of sweet soy sauce so I goggled it. Sure enough, there is a product called sweet soy sauce. Also, I found a recipe for sweet soy sauce but it had spices in it that I was unsure if it would be correct. I asked my husband about it but he had never heard of it so we went to several stores. Of course, I couldn't find it. I asked a store employee who was working the shelves about the product. She told me that she had never heard of sweet soy sauce and she even lived in Japan. I told her my husband had never heard of it too and he had lived in Japan too. The store employee or my husband didn't seem to know much about Thai cuisine but the employee told me just add sugar which I did. Hopefully, you will have better luck in finding sweet soy sauce. Since I didn't want to order it online and have to wait, I went ahead with the recipe. My youngest daughter loved this dish especially the chicken. I would make this dish again. We do have a Thai restaurant near us, I think I will have to order it and compare. Hopefully, my dish tasted close.

  1. Pad See Ew is my favorite Thai dish! This looks great and it looks simple enough to make at home. I probably would just sweeten regular soy sauce ;-)

  2. Now, I'm really going to have to order it. My sister told me it was her favorite too.
