Made From Scratch 

Here at Zabb Thai, we make everything fresh and from scratch. Our curries are prepared every morning using the highest quality ingredients sourced from leading Asian cuisine and spice importers. This dedication extends to our Pad Thai noodles, which are meticulously crafted from scratch. The cornerstone of this process is our house-made Pad Thai sauce. While creating this sauce from scratch demands more effort than using pre-made alternatives, we refuse to compromise at Zabb Thai. We firmly believe that the difference is discernible, as evidenced by the rich and authentic flavors our homemade Pad Thai sauce offers.

Crafting an authentic Pad Thai sauce is a simple yet vital endeavor. Technically, it comprises just three components: sweetness, saltiness, and sourness. However, we go the extra mile by incorporating shallots and garlic into the sauce, saving you time by eliminating the need for on-the-spot chopping and sautéing.

Fresh Ingredients 

Creating from scratch is just the beginning of achieving a high-quality Pad Thai sauce. Ensuring the use of premium ingredients and adhering to a traditional Thai recipe is equally crucial. These principles guide our practices at Zabb Thai in Newport Beach.

Our Pad Thai sauce is meticulously crafted using vegetable stock, soy sauce, fish sauce (with plant-based substitutes available), chili sauce, brown sugar, tamarind, and white pepper. We steadfastly avoid pre-made sauces or mixes, guaranteeing an authentic culinary experience.

We never use pre-made sauces or mixes!
