I love Phad Thai as a dish, but my favourite type of noodles are Singapore noodles because they are thin.
Haha it's interesting you'd say that because there aren't any Singapore noodles in Singapore (where I'm from). It always tickles us when we see that dish overseas... and they are everywhere actually!
Weird. Are they just called something else, like rice vermicelli, or are they not actually there at all?
You're talking about the wok stir-fry vermicelli, am I right? Sometimes they have bits of eggs, chicken/pork and vegetables in there? If that's the case then in Singapore we call it Xin Zhou Mi Fen or Fried Beehoon. You piqued my interest so I googled it and came across this blog post http://maidsinmelbourne.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/why-this-singaporean-hates-singapore-noodles/comment-page-1/
Interesting what she says about the curry powder, because when I think about Singapore noodles, I don't think of all the ingredients to make the dish, I just think about the noodles themselves - the rice vermicelli. I buy the unprepared noodles from the shop - labelled Singapore noodles - and then make my own stir fry. I don't use curry power or oil, but soy sauce.
Sounds great :)
Don't know what they'd make of it in Singapore!
We have many vermicelli type of dishes in Singapore. Vermicelli can be fried or in soup, like a fishball soup, or the Malay/Indonesian chicken soup (Bee Hoon Soto). I usually order vermicelli in Singapore because it's the noodles with the least calories (if not fried in lots of sauce). Haha.
I love the satay beef with noodles. How can I explain - just yummy!
I like vegetable hakka noodles.
Thick noodles in a broth - as in a ramen or laksa. Those 2-minute ones are a bit passť now.
o.m.g. laksa. I haven't had that in a while. Next on the to-eat list!
I like all noodles as I find they taste similar.
I love chinese dumplings and I also make my own noodle called Spaetsle which is Austrian.

I also like Pad Thai. I make noodles at home with my own simple recipe with leftover mince beef and everyone loves them in my home.
I have to say - Char Kway Teow. It is fried flat rice noodles with prawns and Chinese cured sausages in hot wok. The best one must have that smoky wok flavour.

It is a speciality noodle dish, it is common and popular.
I found a really authentic version in Sydney:
