Three San Francisco friends have won a national online contest to come up with a new kind of fast food.

The social gaming website Yoxi sponsors competitions to promote solutions to today's social issues.

The winners chosen by people voting online offered up pad thai as a healthy alternative to traditional fast food saying it's affordable, easy to prepare and portable, if you wrap it up like a burrito.

They'll get $5,000 to start up their business. Their pad thai might hit Bay Area streets next year.
