Miang Kham (Mieng Kam) — This recipe requires a great deal of preparation time, but it's well worth it - especially if you've eaten a tasty miang kham before and have a craving. There's nothing like it. The blend of coconut, ginger, fresh bitter leaves, peanut, lime and chile is a fantastic flavor and one that goes very well with the American palate.
Pla Kapong Kimao (Deep Fried Fish with Garlic Sauce - Thai) — In Thai "kimao" means drunk. However unlike the Chinese "drunken" dishes, which are marinated in alcohol, Thai "kimao" dishes are eaten by drunks - i.e. they are traditional bar food. Sometimes, like this one, they are believed to "put a lining on your stomach" to allow you to drink more.
