All this Thai food talk got me craving Thai food tonight. Fortunately my cravings lean towards Thai Nankorn.
Anyone looking for great flavors and a little out of the ordinary:
Wild boar in spicy sauce. Delicious. Lots of lemongrass, basil, chile. Boar is toothsome but not tonight. Great texture. Love it.
Piguaut curry. Can get it as chicken or beef. Unlike any curry I’ve had. Super complex and focused flavors here. Definitely some kaffir lime and some shrimp paste in here. Everytime I think I’ve got it figured out the flavors change again and elude me. Like this way more than Jitladas jungle curry (not saying they’re the same thing). Curry is more like a broth and not thick or heavy. Outstanding.
“Chinese water grass” with fermented beans. Always good.
Also great here is the green papaya salad (with dried shrimp if you don’t want raw crab), the stuffed chicken wing, the chicken yellow curry. The squid stuffed with pork sounds delicious but I haven’t had a chance to order it yet.
