Pad Thai has been officially added to the Oxford Dictionary.

Thailand has gained another source of pride with the inclusion of its traditional dish "Pad Thai" on the Oxford Dictionary website.

Pad Thai (ผัดไทย) is defined as "a Thai dish made with a type of noodle made from rice, spices, egg, vegetables, and occasionally meat or seafood."

The sweet and sour flavor is provided by the addition of fish sauce, tamarind juice, and palm sugar.

Pad Thai is a popular type of street food among foreign visitors, and it is just as popular as Tom Yum Goong and traditional omelette on rice.

Pad Thai was previously known as "Guay Tiew Pad," and it was created during World War II by Thailand's then-leader Field Marshal Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsongkram as a national dish in response to the country's high rice prices. Noodles were a less expensive option that could be combined with other local ingredients. Because of its distinct flavor, the dish quickly gained popularity, and many people dubbed it pad Thai.

CNNgo named Pad Thai one of the world's best foods, and it is one of Thailand's cultural heritages.
