I love this dish. I found this is an old cookbook by I think “Prevention Magazine.” made changes and continue to serve it. I wish I still had the book but sold it when I moved. Only so much room on my shelves.
This has great Thai flavor but the recipe managed to tweak the ingredients to what is more common which I liked.
I did fine at a local market which recently opened some Oriental noodles (similar to vermicelli) I like them more, but vermicelli works just fine for this.
