Notes

Exclusive recipe from P'Nut Street Noodles - the first street noodle restaurant in Australia to use authentic sauce bases that are made from scratch in Thailand with quality asian ingredients. The soil and growing conditions of P’Nut sauces' fresh ingredients produce flavours that are uniquely asian. For example, galangal, krachai roots, kaffir lime, ginger and chilli come in different varieties and are grown in different ways in Asia compared to Australia, producing different flavours. These authentic sauces are then combined with Aussie produce and proteins to deliver exceptional dishes. There are 11 restaurants across Brisbane, Sydney and Sunshine Coast providing a real Asian street food experience - authentic food, people, recipes and atmosphere.
