Translated into English, Pad Kee Mao literally means “drunken noodles,” or “drunkard’s noodles.” The lip-licking dish consists of wide rice noodles, known as sen yai, stir fried in a wok along with a mess of other ingredients. The outcome is a plate of oily fried noodles that taste amazing while in any state of mind.
Are they named drunkard’s noodles because so many drunkard’s crave such a tasty treat, or is it because the noodles make you intoxicated with deliciousness?
