Fried Sweet Spicy Noodles ( Pad See Eeaw Guy )


This dish a sweet spicy fried noodle dish with chicken, sugar, and chilli. When cooked some of the sugar will caramelize on the noodle and this sweet caramel balances the spicy chilli added later. In Thailand we make this dish with broccoli greens, these are like green frying cabbage with a slight broccoli taste, but you can use any suitable frying green cabbage.
