Pig and Khao – Pad Thai


Rich and vibrant, sweet and sour Pad Thai is a popular stir-fried noodle dish, commonly served as street food, and most restaurants in Thailand.



This recipe gives back to the ACLU. The ACLU works in the courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.


Growing up half-Filipino, Leah Cohen never thought food from her mother’s Filipino heritage would become her life’s work. But after working in Michelin-starred restaurants and then competing on Top Chef, Leah was still searching to define what made her food hers. She found the answer in Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore, Indonesia, and yes, the Philippines, as she rediscovered the deliciously sweet, pungent, and spicy flavors of her youth and set out to take them back with her to New York with acclaimed restaurants Pig & Khao and Piggyback NYC.

Leah’s signature and favorite recipes, including this Pad Thai recipe, can be found in her debut cookbook, Lemongrass & Lime.
