When it was Chris Morocco's turn to be on Taking on Takeout, there was only one thing motivating him: to beat Andy Baraghani. We challenged Chris Morocco to make his own shrimp pad thai faster than it takes for delivery to arrive. Was he up to the challenge?

I love how Chris honestly evaluates both dishes and doesn't trash the takeout while praising his own dish. He highlights the differences with nuance and impartiality, and maintains a bit of humility to give credit where credit is due to the takeout restaurant, while still giving himself credit for beating the timer. And it's an educational video, too. Good stuff!

They would've had everything prepped beforehand. As soon as the order came in they put it together and delivered. As we saw the prepping of the ingredients is what took up most of your time.

How close is the restaurant when then can take an order, make it, and have it delivered in under 15 minutes?? Chris did better than anyone else so far. Finished over 6 min early, how did this happen??

To give credit most restaurants have their ingredients prepared similar to a chipotle so all they have to do is just package the food and deliver it.

To get a glaze rather than a soupy sauce don’t rinse the noodles. The clinging starch will tighten the sauce. I also add dried shrimp and cooked tofu to the recipe. I think Chef did a good job on the classic Pad Thai under the circumstances. The sauce makes the dish and every chef has their favorite ratio of fish sauce, palm sugar and tamarind. I prefer 2:3:4 by volume assuming a 1:2 water palm sugar solution. I like this “beat takeout series” because it shows how a chef operates under pressure.

In most Asian restaurants most of the time the noodles are pre-cooked and placed aside. Even ingredients are pre-prepped. When an order is taken, it's just thrown together for a quick fry and served.
Kriste Isopahkala
Kriste Isopahkala 15 days ago
Of course. Ingredients are pre-prepped in most restaurants. Of course the meat isn't pre-fried, but all the veggies and sauces are ready. It's the delivery time and line that Chris was up against. I'm guessing the restaurant had a really quiet moment.

U want to only hydrate the noodles by halfway, bc the really wet sauce will rehydrate the noodles to a perfect chewy as u stir fry. Another flavor profile that adds depth is dried shrimp or scallops. My mom food processes it into a powder so she can just sprinkle it in the stir fry process and not have to rehydrate whole ones.

Too many Chris videos. Even more than Brad. CN & BA favor him. Obviously we know why. Sohla was right. Scrolling though many video thumbnails. Made me want to 🤢🤮, in emotional support to all who left, because of the inequity and micro systemic racism lying about been multicultural🤮🤮🤮

To your credit, most Thai restaurants have all the prep-items ready for use. So it is just the 2-3 minutes cooking in the wok.
