A note about serious food allergies

There are a lot of foods called “crispy” in this world, but none bring the texture quite like crispy tofu. This is a careful balance between a chewy crunch on the outside and the soft soy inside. We love crispy tofu in everything, but it's absolutely perfect here, mixed with classic pad thai flavors and noodles. In fact, you'll find all the textures here in perfect harmony and balance. A lot of meals are called satisfying, but this one really delivers.
