Yam Tua Plu
In English, Tua Plu is called winged bean. Yam Tua Plu is a fresh salad made from chopped winged beans, a few prawns or slices of squid, peanuts and cashews and dried coconut, all dressed in a tangy spicy sauce. The result is a scrumptious salad combination.
Larb Pla Duk
Larb Moo, which is fresh minced pork salad, is one of the most common Thai street food dishes. However, I much prefer the same blend of herbs and spices made with roasted catfish instead of pork. The smoky flavored catfish is deboned and merged with toasted rice flakes, chilli flakes, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice, fish sauce, and maybe a few sprigs of mint. I simply can’t get enough of this!
Khao Kluk Kaphi
Khao Kluk Kaphi is rice coated in fragrant shrimp paste and joined with sliced green beans, green mango slivers, onions, egg, Chinese sausage and a little bit of marinated pork. As is common with Thai food, it’s the diversity of flavours that really makes it exciting!
