BUILDING THE FOUNDATION
The original recipe for Bangkok Curry was developed after an extensive trip to Asia where our founding chef tasted everything in sight. He wanted to create a recipe that provided the perfect balance of flavors and textures that he experienced while in Thailand. The result is what we all have come to know and love as Bangkok Curry – a light and soulful blend of six fresh, crunchy vegetables tossed with a creamy, yet light curry sauce served over a bed of rice noodles.
DIRECTLY FROM THE SOURCE
You can’t fake authenticity, and nothing is more authentic than the ingredients in our Bangkok Curry. Our sauce is a unique blend of coconut milk, tamarind, hot chile paste, sweet chile, and yellow curry paste (and a few other things that shall remain secret!), all sourced directly from Thailand. We also buy our rice noodles from a company in Thailand where the Thai locals buy their noodles. They call the noodles “long life noodles” because they signify a long life to the person eating them. Because of this, the noodles are never cut or shortened in the belief that it would be bad luck and would shorten that person’s life. So we don’t cut ours either.
MAKE IT YOUR WAY
Customization is an integral part of the culture of Asian noodle dishes and of Noodles & Company. The delicate, sweet and creamy Bangkok Curry sauce is the perfect canvas to mix, match and add ingredients. Swap spinach for broccoli or add organic tofu or shrimp. For those you who really want to make it your own, change things up by choosing different noodles. One of our favorite “remixes” of Bangkok Curry is to go with whole grain linguine instead of rice noodles. A healthy dash of Sriracha is an easy way to add a spicy, rich kick. With Bangkok Curry, you can customize it in any way you like while never sacrificing the essence of the dish.
THINK GLOBAL, EAT LOCAL
At Noodles, we know that local means fresher – and fresher tastes better. To ensure that our food is uber-tasty, we source as many of our ingredients from local farmers as possible. Going local also fits in with our values that a great meal starts with great ingredients.
Bangkok Curry is made with six veggies that we source from local farms when they are in season (which is now!), including: onions, cabbage, red peppers, bean sprouts, cilantro, and mushrooms.
