Dok Bua: Still on top of its game

Haven't been in a while and got a craving for larb. Happy to see it busy on a muggy Sunday evening and clearly and deservedly a neighborhood favorite. Started with the yummy Miang-Kum, all crunchy and served with a tangy tamarind sauce. That nice balance of lime, chili, and sweetness. Followed with a deep fried fish in chili and basil, again with the sauce perfectly poised between hot, sour and sweet. Ended with the larb we had come for: just the right stuff. Service was as sweet and attentive as ever. This is an ever-pleasant, well-run and excellent kitchen and a nice counterpoint to other grander places in price and quality. Dinner for two can easily be had for 11.00 bucks apiece if you stick to the very extensive fixed dinner menu, and its a bargain even if you order everything you want! I think the neighborhood will make sure this place is there everytime I remember I need a larb fix!
