Not a lot of people are aware that the history of Thailand’s street food treasure, Pad Thai, doesn’t really date far back. In 1930, the prime minister of Thailand took advantage of a rice shortage to push for a noodle dish alternative that would preserve their rice resources and, at the same time, help establish the identity of the country. Pad Thai was promoted heavily up and down the country under the campaign slogan “noodle is your lunch”.
