I chose Pohpia (Spring Rolls) for a starter; these were hot and crispy and served with the traditional sweet sauce for dipping. Koeng Pad Hed Sod, the entree I selected was a shrimp dish with plenty of tender shrimp, green pepper, mushrooms, and served with rice. It had a nice flavor, but I decided to turn up the heat by trying a bit of the hot pepper sauce on the table. I’ve never eaten anything so hot in my life...and I loved every bite! We each had a few beers to whet our thirst, and in my case, to quench the fire of the pepper sauce!
