Sen Pad Thai: Holy Basil Stirfry
Sen Pad Thai is yet another Thai-inspired street food eatery from Angus An to go along with his other sister restaurants (Longtail Kitchen, Freebird Chicken, etc…). This shop is actually located in the Net Loft building at Granville Island (as opposed to the food court located in the market).
We stopped by in September during our staycation and ordered their Pad Ga Pao Beef ($13 + $2 for fried egg) and Crispy Wings with Thai Garlic ($8).
Pad Ga Pao or Pad Ka Prao (or however you spell/pronounce it) is basically a stirfry dish with holy basil. I found that the version at Sen Pad Thai wasn’t as good as the chicken version that I had at Longtail but it was fairly adequate and had a bit of a spicy kick to it.
The chicken wings were coated in a very light and crispy batter. Unfortunately, the fried garlic didn’t stick well to the chicken (and that’s the best part). However, the wings did have a moist centre and went well with the dipping sauce. We actually wound up dumping the left over dipping sauce and fried garlic in the stirfry dish and that really kicked up the flavour to the stirfry.
Fairly good offering here but I’d need to try out some of their other dishes to be sure 🙂
