I have been a huge fan of Thai food for many years. I have to admit though, I tend to revolve around 3 or 4 staple dishes found in American Thai restaurants. Things like Pad Thai, fried rice and various curries. One thing that has intrigued me for some time has been “Larb.” Larb is a delicious meat salad consisting of ground meat (usually chicken or pork), herbs, chilis, fish sauce, lime juice and toasted ground rice. It is typically served with either sticky rice or leafy greens to eat lettuce wrap style. I am so happy I finally tried it! Such a combustion of flavors, satisfying mouthfeel and quite fragrant. Overall a very light dish that won’t leave you feeling all distended after dinner. I highly recommend trying Larb the next time you’re dining in a Thai restaurant.
