When you think of eating in Thailand, one of the very first things that comes to mind is Pad Thai. While eating in Asia, you cannot miss the ubiquitous Pad Thai found on every street corner and every restaurant. But not all are made equal! You will come across some good, and some bad and some amazing ones as the one I have found in Phuket at The Pad Thai Shop in Karon, Phuket.
I arrived around lunch time on a lazy Thursday afternoon, and the line up was out the door. The restaurant was filled with locals and tourists alike, waiting to get their serving of this incredibly tasty pad thai. The recipe has not changed for many years, and the whole entire family runs this restaurant. The atmosphere is super fast paced, no-frills and crappy service but all that is forgotten by your first bite.
