Marni’s Pad See Ew with Prawns is inspired by Songkran or เทศกาลสงกราน (Thai New Year) which is celebrated on 13th April each year. It is also known as the Water Splashing Festival and it also marks the beginning of the Buddhist New Year.
Pad See Ew is a famous Thai street food and translates literally as “fried with soy sauce”. It is known for its gorgeous caramelised noodle flavour that comes from cooking it at a high heat.
