Eat this spicy stir fry from Thai Nivas Cafe
Getting through the pad nam prik pao (called “spicy stir fry” on the menu) at Thai Nivas Cafe is a fiery fantasia of Thai chili, sweat and, in some cases, tears – especially if you order it at a level 5 like we do. Aromatic basil swims alongside perfectly cooked peppers, onions, carrots and a protein (we prefer the superb tofu). Pro tip: Tack on an order of basil fried rice. If you’re going hard in the spice zone, you might need more than the stir fry’s side of white rice.
