Rice Noodles

Want to try to make my own pad see ew. Any places to purchase fresh rice noodles in the Needham area?

  1. Maybe go to Whole Food on Beacon Street in Newton? Either that or head over to Brighton to Super 88. I know you have a TJs in Needham, but I'm not sure if they would have what you're looking for.

    1. I'm not really familiar with the Boston area grocery stores, but if you can't find fresh noodles, Pad See Ew can be made with thin dried rice noodles as well. When you purchase a package of dried noodles, make sure you soak them in a bowl of warm water. Let them sit until they are a bit al dente and strain most, if not all of the water out. Traditionally, Pad See Ew is made with any size noodle, so dried noodles would be an equally delicious solution.
