We both share a love of Thai food and its vibrant flavors, particularily the Drunken Noodle dish. One of our favorite Thai restaurants in the city, Sura Thai, has a very well done version of these noodles. However, our limited budget forces us to learn how to cook the foods we love most. Upon my roommate’s request for drunken noodles this weekend, I found a recipe from the Food & Wine website and attempted to cook Thai food for the first time in my life. The fragrant chilies and sauces used in the recipe evoke the essence of Thai cuisine. Noodle dishes like this one are great as a one dish meal, combining both meats, vegetables, and carbohydrates.
