This is a lovely recipe. As I do not have fish sauce currently I opted to use soy sauce. It was a fine substitution. I made half of my gai choy yesterday, so today I am using this recipe again to make the rest - except this time I'm going to grill some tofu and cook some broad rice noodles to make my own pad sew :P
