Don't forget to add some chilis - this is a dish best served spicy! With its sweet pasted and salty tofu and dried shrimp, these thicker rice noodles are topped with dried shrimp and green onions and served with lime on the side.However, it's best tried at tiny street stalls or marketside restaurants, made in a wok on the spot and served piping hot. If you go to Thailand food and drink,,, you ought to try it at least once, since it's what has been most thoroughly imported to the Western world. Order either with yellow chilies or with curry powder if you love curries - I really love the fresh tasting flavours of the yellow chilies in this!Lump Crab stir fried with yellow chilies is an epic heavenly dish especially for those who don't like to pick out the crab meat themselves - look at those gorgeous gigantic chunks of crab! Imagine my disappointment when I tasted some highly recommended stalls which turned out to be average or plain at best - but the amount of time and effort for me as a tourist to search for such places - simply not worth it. Perhaps it's a matter of one's preference and taste but it's good knowledge for my write up on Bangkok food. What I realized is that quite a few of the so called must try food recommended by some websites can be misleading.I have to say - eating about 120+ dishes in a space of 5 days in Bangkok for research purposes can be pretty tiring. You don't find it around a lot; I mostly see it in the night market near the famous Khao San Road or at the weekend market. It's a very sweet dish that can be a little too sweet on its own, so I tend to eat it with rice to mellow out the flavor.I should know what goes into it because this is one of my favorite dishes, but all I really care about is the taste. I'll be honest — other than pumpkin and eggs, I have no idea what's in this dish. You want to stop eating it, but you can't.As it's used throughout the day, the mortar is coated with chili pieces and seeds, so when they make mine, the residue coats my dish with enough spice for me. But I often put up with the fiery taste, because it's just so delicious. It's so spicy, I simply don't get it made with any chilies. It's as delicious and amazing as it is fiery.Shaved papaya is tossed in a mortar and pestle with carrots, peanuts, tomatoes, string beans, palm sugar, fish sauce, and a whole lot of chilies. This dish is a staple of Thai cuisine, and you can't throw a stone without hitting a dozen som tam sellers. It's a common dish, but I prefer mine from the night markets and street stalls, where they tend to mince and chop the meat a little more finely than in restaurants.
