Pad Kee Mao from The Smiling Elephant

Many diners judge their favorite Thai restaurants strictly by the pad Thai, that old standby of Siamese cuisine. While Smiling Elephant’s version is outstanding, a deeper reading of the menu uncovers pad kee mao, or drunken noodles, a stir-fried dish made with wide rice noodles. The cooks here toss it with Thai basil, which they pull from plants grown in pots and flowerboxes onsite, along with spicy chiles, sauces, and oils to punch it up to your desired perspiration level.
