A real Thai classic Pad Krapao ( which means basil stir-fry) topped with, or served over, a crispy fried egg with a slightly runny yolk.
Most of the street vendors around Thailand will serve krapao as it is a very popular lunchtime dish – indeed it is a joke in many offices when you don’t know what to order for lunch, you just order krapao.
This dish is also quick and delicious to make at home – the only ingredient you may struggle to find outside of Asia is holy basil – at a push you could use sweet basil instead.
Pad krapao is usually made using either chicken or pork, but beef or even seafood like squid could also be used:
Are you a pad krapao fan? Who or where has served the best pad krapao you have tasted? Do you think you will have a go at cooking this yourself?
