Okay, okay....so it has taken me FOREVER to finally get out to Dok Bua. Thanks to all for the constant updates and tantalizing messages! We were not disappointed. Brought another couple along and everyone was blown away. Had the papaya salad, shrimp rolls (just ok) and beef larb to start. The Larb was one of the best preparations of beef I have ever had, any cuisine. We moved on to a steamed grouper w/chilis, shrimp curry and a wide noodle pad w/tofu/veggies/brown sauce whose name I can't remember. All were outstanding.
Didnt' think we could eat more, but then the pumpkin custards and the sticky rice w/coconut milk/mango changed our minds. All desserts were hot and incredible ....the sticky rice melted in my mouth.
THanks for all the recommendations!
