Finally made it to Night + Market in West Hollywood and was salivating at the thought of som tum. The restaurant seems to have gotten a fair amount of acclaim, and I thought I was in for a real treat.
Turned out to be one of the worst som tum's I have ever had. No heat, no discernible taste of fish sauce and tired limp strands of papaya.
So that leaves the question of where I can find great som tum? The best used to be at Wat Thai before they closed down the weekend food court.
