Won’t write too much here except to straighten the menu:

Sai krok Issan – Thai Issan sausage (fan-fuggin-tastic, not fried, super flavorful, not too sour)
Moo yang – grilled pork neck with “jaew” (much better hot, sorry!)
Soup nor mai – Issan bamboo salad (funky, FUNKY version, with mint? lots of lemon grass)
larp neua / soi koy – Issan aw minced beef salad (innnteresting, not quite the soi koy i was expecting)
kaeng nor mai – NE / Lao style bamboo shoot soup (love it, love the funk, love the greens)
kao klu ka pi – shrimp paste fried rice with mix in’s (major disappointed, TRIPLE the fish paste and call me again)
green curry with fish balls (really, REALLY coconutty)
larp koong – Issan raw shrimp salad (would’ve been great if followed moo yang / sausage combo)
whole fried trout with 3 flavor sauce
some random coconut jelly dessert
outta town ringers: cupcakes & peanut buttery inside cookies

Owners: Samone/Tom
Chef: Linda
Waiter: Nam

This dinner was squeezed in between 3 other stops I made with the manbitesworld.org crew. In addition, we also had Claro’s Italian sub which totaled to coronary-inducing 4 restaurants in 6 hours.
