som tam

kate | Sep 8, 2001 06:12 PM

I would like to know where in NYC (any borough) I can get som tam, the real thing, the green papaya salad that is actually pounded in a mortar and drips with flavor, not the tossed lightly salted variety that seems to be standard in all the Thai restaurants I've tried. This was my favorite dish when I lived in Thailand, but I've never been able to find it here. Any suggestions?
