After dining out all weekend with out of town company, I was craving something light and refreshing. So I chose “Larb” off the salad section of the menu. It was a choice of minced chicken, pork, or beef, mixed with red and green onions, cilantro, and roasted rice kernels tossed in a Thai lime-garlic dressing, and served with baby romaine lettuce leaves. It happens to be the National dish of Laos. I ordered mine with minced chicken and enjoyed every spicy bite, that I scooped up with the lettuce leaves. I was not expecting it to have such a kick, but it was delicious and I ate almost every bit. So, I am declaring Larb at Natalee Thai as my best bite of the week!
