Papaya salad or som tam is a mainstay of Thai cuisine and is sweet and spicy in equal measure. Originally from the northeast region of Thailand called Issan, this healthy and low-cost dish can be found on the menu of the top restaurants across the city, as well as at street-side vendors. There are many variations of this dish, but ‘Thai-style’ generally includes shredded, unripe papaya that is smashed together with chilli, tomato, lime and peanuts. Other varieties might include baby crab, or for the real traditionalists, fermented fish sauce.
There are four papaya salads to choose from here, but we have ordered the one with salted egg. It is an intense mix of lime and chilli, with the sweet and spicy flavours intermingling from the first bite of the fresh papaya and crunchy peanuts while chunks of tomato bring some respite to your taste buds. It must be said that the papaya salad here is sweeter and less spicy than at other places around town.
Lard Pla Tod – a little deep fried tilapia. Crispy and topped with a good selection of lard ingredients like red onions, herbs, chilies, and mint leaves. It was pretty good, but can improved as I find it quite dry.
Very addictive fried chicken!! Crispy, tender and juicy are the words to describe it! It’s another must order dish here!
Really enjoyed our dinner..
Thai chili sauce is fantastic!
Drink of that night..
