The Quest for the Perfect Pad See Eiw

That is, the quest for the perfect Pad See Eiw that is not located in Sydney. This quest has now entered its tenth year and we now discuss last night’s entry, from Thai Nakonlanna in St Lucia, Qld.

Unfortunately there will be no pictures, even though I had my camera with me. Sorry if you’re the type of person that actually thinks a picture is worth a thousand words.

Before we get to the food, I want to mention the cost. The Pad See Eiw with chicken here was 12AUD. As a point of comparison, Thai La-Ong charges 10.5AUD (dinnertime price). There’s this myth floating around that Sydney is the most expensive city in Australia, but after seeing prices here in Brisbane I’m calling Bravo Sierra on that one.

With much anticipation the first mouthful left the plate, was delicately transported upwards on a fork and entered the mouth. In an instant, I knew that this was not the one. It’s hard for me to describe exactly what was wrong in words, though I feel it was not sweet enough.

I don’t know why I bother continuing on this futile quest. I really should give up.
