This noodle curry dish is standard faire among Isaan Thais (North Eastern Thais). The predominant taste is of fish sauce & chilli rather than curry, but this can be a bit overwhelming so you may prefer to increase the chicken and peanuts if you are not accustomed to authentic Thai food. You can use either pork or chicken in this recipe.
