Festive enough to imagine. Chef Boy Logro prepared this Thai cuisine
more flavorful enough to serve his guest at his leading
prime time show Idol sa Kusina.

  • 5 tbspn. + 1 tspn. Asian fish sauce
  • 1 pack Japanese tofu, quartered

  • 3 tbspns. Cooking oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2/3 cup Salted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Bean sprout
  • ½ cup Cilantro leaves
  1. In small bowl, combine the chicken and ½ tspn. fish sauce. In another bowl, combine tofu with another ½ teaspoon fish sauce. In a glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the remaining 5 tbspns. fish sauce with water, 1 ½ tbspns. lime juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, and cayenne.
  2. In pot of boiling, salted water, cook linguine until done. Drain.
  3. in wok, heat 1 tbspn. oil over moderately high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring until just done. Remove.
  4. Put another tablespoon of oil in wok. Add tofu and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove.
