It’s corner view time and this week’s theme is – What’s for Lunch? . For me it’s
Som Tum – also known as a Papaya Salad, served to me in a plastic bag.
It has carrots, tomatoes, a young papaya and green beans. If you like they’ll add dried shrimp.
All these ingredients, with some lime juice and other sauces are added together and pounded. for me it’s not Som Tum unless it has chili in it. I think that’s it’s signature ingredient, red chilies. They’ll leave them out if you tell them too, but I love it and always ask for 2!!
this is what I have maybe 2 or 3 times a weeks. It’s quick easy, cheap and I love it. sometimes I’ll have it with some smoked pork and sticky rice but otherwise it’s okay to have it on it’s own.
It’s taken me almost 3 years to finally feel comfortable to buy food off the street. I was so scared in the beginning but I’ve learnt to keep my eye out on the food that I choose to buy.
