From the Test Kitchen

In many cultures, street food is a way of life. Served from stands and carts, these on-the-go meals are designed to hit the spot in no time. But what inspires us most is their surprising capacity for freshness and lightness. In Southeast Asia, especially, “roadside” noodles rely on delicious, regional ingredients like Thai basil, lemongrass and ginger. In this dish, you’ll these flavors to make a stir-fry that’s as satisfying as it is quick.
