Author Notes: Bangkok: the gastronomic paradise. I drop off my bags at home and walk down to the market, following the smell of herbs, fish sauce and chilies. I am hoping my childhood food cart is already there, setting up for the evening crowd. Bingo! Larb Gai, here I come. I love watching the whole process in that big metal bowl: a quick toss of cilantro, onions, mint, fish sauce, chilies, lime and along with a handful of ground pork. In a flash, I have myself a meal of droolicious spicy ground pork with chewy gluttonous rice. Oh, the memories.
*Rice powder can be bought in asian ethnic stores. Throw a few tbsp of rice powder in a pan over low heat and toast it for a few minutes until golden brown; it may be opted out, but I like the it for the extra nuttiness and grittiness of the dish. Substitute this dish with other kinds of meat or even tofu.

Serves 2

  • 1 chicken breast, baked or poached, then hand shredded
  • 1 shallots, thinly sliced

  1. Mix ingredients until evenly distributed; eat with balsamic rice or gluttonous rice.
