First things first: there is a lot of bad pad thai in Thailand because (spoiler) Thai people don’t eat the rice noodle dish with the fervor that American takeout menus might lead you to believe. But the good folks at Kopitiam by Walai are known for their authentic Phuketian-style pad thai, which means the noodles are thin, the shrimp is fresh from the sea, and there’s a major spice level. The other reason the lines are long here is for mee sua, a sautéed noodle dish that perfectly combines egg, squid, sea bass (or other white fish), prawns, fried egg, and Chinese cabbage. Yum!
