Help! I'm very picky about my pad siew.

See-ew! | Feb 1, 2005 09:14 AM

I've been in NYC for five years, but I haven't had a good pad see-uw since I left Chicago.

All of the pad siew here tastes like Chinese food with soy sauce and sugar. Also, the noodles here are waaay too skinny. I want thick, charred rice noodles. Even the famed Sripraphai doesn't live up.

Can anyone help? I was thinking maybe this is a regional/ethnic thing. Maybe Thais in NYC are from a different area of Thailand than the ones in Chicago?

To get an idea of what I'm talking about, see the photo I put on craigslist:
