A Little Known Thai Street Food
When people go to Thailand, and often make sure they get to try Pad Thai. But many may not realize that at some of those Pad Thai vendors, there is another dish on the menu that is almost like a hidden gem, ordered only by locals. That dish is called Kanom Pakkaad, or Kanom Huapakkaad for the long version. It's basically an immensely satisfying stir-fry that uses cubes of Chinese turnip cakes. Yes, the same turnip cakes that you often see at dim sum restaurant, also known as lo bak go, radish cake, daikon cake, or even carrot cake (but no, there is no carrot in it).
