Even Yummier Refreshing Pad Thai

I love cooking asian/oriental. Every time I successfully accomplish an oriental dish, I kinda feel like I conquered the world, (or at least i do until the food gone...)

[Oh man, i have to give you guys the recipe for a delicious japanese carrot dressing that I created. !!!! The next time i make it... for sure.!]

but mmMmm this pad thai was even more delicious than the first! I combined thinly sliced Shitake mushrooms with julienned carrots and peppers and tossed it with chopped scallions. I dont recall exactly everything i used to season it, but Im pretty sure I used a simple dressing of rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil a few red pepper flakes (opt) & i think i might have added garlic powder or freshly minced garlic..

Oh && super uber muy imporante when making pad thai... use the right kind of noodles!! I think these are rice noodles... and for lo mein, i use egg noodles...fyi.
