Tonight, I had my first pad thai in Thailand at Thip sa mai / Pad Thai Pra Tu Phe. It was quite an experience: chefs work furiously at large woks near the sidewalk while patrons sit inside at modest tables. Once the pad thai is cooked, a single portion is thrown onto a special wok and wrapped in a thin layer of egg -- a feat which takes only 4-5 seconds. I switched to slow-motion mode to better capture the crazy cooking. I'm sure I'll assemble something for the web eventually; until then, here's a little preview.
**UPDATE, JULY 13**: I've replaced the video file with a longer edit.
