I'd sure like to give more authentic Thai a try, but I'm more of a 'medium-spicy' type. For example, the spicy Bon Chon chicken was a bit too hot for me. It tasted great, but by the end of the first piece my lips/tongue were on fire.
I'm not afraid of fish sauce, pork fat, fish bones or other strong flavors and I certainly like some heat, I just can't enjoy a lot of real hot stuff. I feel like I can't taste anything else.
Is the Pad ga pow moo krob the 3 layer pork with basil? How spicy would you rate that? I also love a good Som Tum salad, but again, med-hot. Are there other great dishes anyone would recommend for the chili-challenged? I'm willing to give some dishes a try to see if they're too hot, but I'd rather not have everything I order be that way.
