Seeking something "fresh" - Follow-up; Mango Salad?

Juniper | Jun 27, 2006 02:56 PM

Thanks for all the recs. I ended up at Linda for Thai. Can I just tell you how utterly disappointed I am with their mango salad?? I thought that because it's "fine dining" it would be better/different than what they serve downstairs at Salad King. And can I tell you how much I hate Salad King's mango salad? Oy. No dried shrimps, no chopped cilantro, no fish sauce, lame crushed peanuts (as opposed to nicely roasted whole/coarsely chopped ones), and no heat from finely chopped thai chillis. Just mango tossed with some shredded carrot and iceberg lettuce, and a sprig of parsley thrown in for colour.

Can anyone tell me where to find a kick-ass mango salad in this town?? I won't even go so far as requesting something as good as in Thailand... how 'bout just something as good as what one finds in LA's Thai Town?
