But there was another funky food recently: Khao Pun. Its cold soft fresh rice noodles that must be one of the stickiest things on earth. They come in patty arrangement and you can't separate the strands. They only last maybe a day before going off-delicate noodles. We had some at home with Vietname take out; Naem Nuang is tons of fresh greens, small chopped veggie bits, chunks of grilled pork sausage, Khao Puhn, maybe some peanuts, wrapped up in a fresh spring roll wrapper and dipped. High labor, high flavor. Yum. Eating Naem Nuang would be out of Nava's reach though as it requires some serious chew action from more teeth than the girl's got. So she got to play with the noodles instead.
|What's this? And how do you get it off!?!?!|
And then I remembered that Kao Puhn is very traditionally eaten a special (kid of watery) curry and finely chopped veg. So I warmed some of the pork curry in the fridge and plopped it on a bowl of khao puhn and Nava slurped it up. Yum.
