Let me share with you the dishes that we were able to try during our 6 course dinner last night:
Our dinner began with a very familiar appetizer called Miang Kam. I was so happy to be able to try this again as I enjoyed this tremendously in Thai Bistro in Manila. However, I was spoiled back home as the Miang Kam was already topped with the fillings and all I had to do was to roll it up and to eat it in one go. Here, it's a deconstructed version where the ingredients are laid out in front of you and it's really up to you how you want your Miang Kam to go. Want it more sour? Add more lime! Want it spicy, load up on the chili. It was still delicious nonetheless and a lot of fun mixing and matching the fillings.
Following the delicious rice crackers, we had a trio of more appetizers -- Yam Som O, Lab Gai and Yam Woon Sen.
The Lab Gai is minced chicken with ground rice and mint leaf. They have also incorporated chopped red chili into it making it really fiery hot. Wrapped in cucumber, I really like how the cucumber leaves a refreshing and soothing after taste.
Lastly, the Yam Woon Sen is spicy glass noodles (think -- sotanghon) with poached prawns. I really like this a lot but I couldn't finish it because it was once again too spicy for me.
