THAILAND: Som tum

I stopped by the great little Thai hole-in-the-wall (literally, you order in through a window) – Social Thai. It’s consistently rated as one of Ottawa’s best Thai restaurants. Got there just at golden hour, perfect for a little outdoors snack.

I tried the som tum – a salad of shredded green (unripe) papaya, with other veggies, cilantro, crushed peanuts, fish sauce, lime, and chilies. It’s lovely and refreshing – and wonderfully spicy. They don’t softball you here on heat, it was great – I broke a sweat. Glad I had a cold beer to go with the salad!
