Pak Boong Recipe

Stir-fried water morning glory is one of Thailands most popular vegetable side dishes, its rarely seen at Thai restaurants outside Asia, as Pak Boong is hard to find.This simple yet delicious stir fried vegetable side dish made with Pak Boong (ผักบุ้ง; Water Morning Glory; Water Spinach) is one of Thailand's most popular foods. We think it should be on every first-time visitor's "must eat" list, as it is difficult to find at restaurants in the west. Seasoned with soy bean paste, garlic, chilies, soy sauce, and oyster sauce, the salty-spicy-sour-and-crunchiness of Pad Pak Boong Fai Daeng is great as a side dish or all by itself.
