Laab, Grilled chicken, and good company

Our new friends Kartik and Lucy were back in Bangkok after a week or so of climbing down in Krabi, and we decided to get some dinner in our neighborhood.  We were all really hungry, so we ordered a TON of food.

We got two kinds of laab (duck and pork; this is pork):

This spicy salad is made with ground meat, shallots, fish sauce, lime juice, chilies, green onions, cilantro, and toasted rice powder (which gives it a nice little crunch).  The dressing is delicious and just cries out to be mopped up with a little sticky rice.

It came with two kinds of chili sauce – one very sweet, and the other more sour and hot.

Sausage salad:

This pork sausage is really mild, and the simple salad just combines it with a little onion, fish sauce, lime, and chilies. It also looks like there might have been a little stir-fried kale in there.  I can’t remember because my mind was processing all the delicious flavors and not worry about trivial things like that.

The spread:

We also got some sticky rice (in the little brown cylinder) and two kinds of som tham (one with salted eggs and one without).

I couldn’t resist a candid shot of everyone enjoying this awesome dinner!
