If you can’t get enough of noods, The Grid and Off-Grid at Rockwell has copious amounts of it being served in their stalls. There’s Tsuke-men for hearty bowls of ramen plus DIY kits so you can slurp on your noods whenever you want at home; Gochugang for Korean japchae and cold noodles; Babu for your laksa fix; White Flower Tea House for Chinese noodle soups and dry noodles; and Pilya’s Kitchen for Chinese biangbiang noodles.
Adding to the already great selection of Asian noodles of the food market is The Pad: a new concept from the folks of the Samyan stall serving Thai Street Food by way of award-winning chef Thitid Tassanakajohn. Chef Ton is the culinary brains behind the Michelin-starred Le Du in Bangkok, which also ranks as No. 4 in Asia’s 50 Best. ICYMI, Chef Ton’s Samyan garnered Thailand’s Thai Select Casual Award in 2020 given to overseas food outlets that offer exceptional Thai foods with Thai taste. Now, the team behind Samyan has rolled out their new concept that is centered on the ubiquitous noodle dish of Thailand: the pad thai.
Pad thai at The Pad comes in both solo and potluck servings, and there are currently five kinds of noodles available in the stall. There’s Pad Thai Moo/Pork Pad Thai (P320/solo, P1,100/potluck), Pad Thai Gai/Chicken Pad Thai (P320/solo, P1,100/potluck), Pad Thai Gung/Shrimp Pad Thai (P380/solo, P1,200/potluck), Pad Thai Talai/Seafood Pad Thai (P420/solo, P1,300/potluck), and Pad Thai Pu/Crab Pad Thai (P590/solo, P2,200/potluck). So there’s a pad thai for whatever protein you desire and prefer!
To complete the Thai dining experience, you can also cross-order your beverages at their sister stall Samyan, which offers drinks like Thai Milk Tea, Thai Iced Tea, and more.
The Pad is now open for dine-in at The Grid via Samyan’s stall, open daily from 11am to 8:30pm. Also available for takeout, pick-up, and delivery. To order for delivery, visit thepad.pickup.ph. They are also available through foodpanda, GrabFood, and Pick-a-Roo delivery apps.
