Don't you think we have similar taste when it comes to food, so I am with you on this tofu pad Thai recipe. Looks very delicious and tempting.

Btw, I am already in Vietnam for the pass 3 days and tomorrow heading to Cambodia. Sorry if I am unable to comment on your blog due to time constraint but certainly will esp when the internet connection is found as in certain places, its really bad.
I have been wanting to make pad thai for a while. I just bought some tamarind concentrate and this recipe looks great. I love your mortar and pestle.. it's beautiful! This pad thai would make me very happy... I hope it helps you mend faster. :)
