    Isaan Lao food delights?

    So after 10 years living in the south (Trang province) my dear wife,born in Phang Nga has discovered a real nice restaurant with a garden that cooks excellent Lao food she says (papaya salad and anything that blows her head off being her delight..go figure) in local village..been there for years she says.

    So being an old farang with eyes and mouth for practically any food ( same cannot be said for my stomach and colon)..

    Any of you Isaan or.. guys with GFs or spouses...What are the pieces des resistances or favourite specialties from way up north?..recommendations please..have asked wife and she just says ..everything!

    Don't eat any of the dodgy stuff (most of it).

    Perhaps some pla chon or some chicken larb (I suspect Slap's larb is dodgy...). The fried chicken might be nice too, but where you are the HadYai fried chicken should be the dog's bolloks!

    Kor moo yang (grilled pork) คอหมูย่าง. But make sure it's grilled or barbecued and not fried or boiled!

    That very dish put me out of circulation for 3 days.
    Missed out on a solar eclipse ... oh well, there will be another one ... in 8 decades.

    Any raw meat dishes in Thailand, I avoid like the plague.

    Cooked Larb Moo is excellent though.

    Odd perhaps, but I like to take fresh bites of moo daeng with the mango/coconut cream. Sweet and savory thing going - great together.

    Green mango or unripe mango beats ripe mango hands down.

    I find ripe mango have a very acidiferous taste.

    Larb (beef, pork, chicken etc)
    Raw beef salad


    Of course, plenty of guts n grizzle too. And that bluddy pla rah.
    ^^^ Doubt that mango dish is Isaan- Isaanites don't much like coconut milk.



    Cousin KK wishes to announce- it's rat season now! It comes after the rice harvest.

    The family enjoyed a nice rat pad ka pao yesterday, it's their favorite way of cooking paddy rat.
    I had a wee bit too- mrs sab picks out a few bits of meat without bones for me to sample. Actually the meat is quite nice, but seeing as it's all mixed in with tiny little bones, not bothered with it.
