After watching a version of this recipe prepared on "Calling All Cooks" on the Food Network by a lady named Poolie who was from Thailand, I immediately wanted to give it a try. I had to watch the episode several times to get the recipe correct - as the version they provided was not exactly as described by Poolie while she cooked. Poolie seasoned everything to taste, so please take the measurements very loosely and taste & season as you prefer. She did not add anything spicy to this dish. The Thai sweet soy sauce is very dark and thick and sweet - almost syrupy. You would need to look in an Asian foods store to find it. I used seasoned rice wine vinegar instead of the Thai white vinegar, which I was unable to locate. The wide rice noodles resemble slightly wider fettuccine or egg noodles.
